I could, quite frankly, spend hours just looking at all the stuff there is to do at Ibn Battuta Mall, leave alone actually shopping for anything. Sights like the Elephant Clock in India Court, the spectacular mosaics of Persia Court, and any number of eye-popping sights make it a treat for the senses – if not quite the same treat for your bank account! Still, to find one of the mall’s most visual stunning sights, look for a colourful sign in India Court that reads ‘Mirror Room‘. This will lead you to a dazzling infinity room full of photo opportunities aplenty, and best of all, it’s entirely free to visit.
The Ibn Battuta mirror room flies surprisingly under the radar, given how spectacular it looks on social media. However, anyone who makes the pilgrimage in search of an ideal selfie spot will find themselves well-rewarded here, with a swirling array of shapes, colours, and designs to fill the background of your pics.
The mirror room is admittedly small – anymore than two or three people is going to be a real squeeze – but the dazzling colours astound out of all proportion. If you’ve never been able to see one of Yayoi Kusama’s fabled infinity rooms in person before, you’ll get a taste of the Japanese artist’s notable style here. And, let’s face it, a camera roll full of selfies…
The designs inside the mirror room are known to change from time to time, which is the ideal excuse for a repeat visit, isn’t it? Currently, there’s an array of floating lightbulbs that bewitch the sense of anyone who visits:
You won’t need to spend anything to enjoy this spectacular sight either, as the Ibn Battuta mirror room is free to visit. Worst case scenario, you might have to brave a little queue to get your snaps in, but in the grand scheme of things, that’s only a small price to pay!
