The Ibn Battuta Mall is a large shopping mall on the Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai close to Interchange 6 for Jebel Ali Village. Having more than 270 shops, 50 restaurants, a 21-screen cinema and over 4,500 parking spaces on a total of 521,000 m2 (5,610,000 sq ft), Ibn Battuta is the world's largest themed shopping mall. On May 26, 2013 Nakheel announced the tender for Ibn Battuta Mall expansion – a new, 28,000 m2 (300,000 sq ft) retail hub for another 150 shops.
It consists of six courts, each of whose designs are inspired by some of the countries visited by the Moroccan Berber explorer, Ibn Battuta: Andalusia Court, China Court, Egypt Court, India Court, Persia Court, and Tunisia Court.
