Dubai: Another Guinness World Record In Honour Of Sheikh Zayed

Dubai is already home to the world’s tallest tower and biggest mall and even the highest scoreboard during the World Cup. And now it has broken yet another Guinness World Record, for a 12,000-piece puzzle created in celebration of the Year of Zayed.

The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) confirmed on Sunday that it has successfully claimed a new Guinness World Records title for the largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area.

 

In celebration of the Year of Zayed,  the 12,000-piece puzzle features the image of Shaikh Zayed, the UAE’s founding father.

The puzzle is so big, spanning an area of 6,000 square metres, that it can be visible from a distance.

It can be found within the Uptown Dubai district of DMCC, master developer of Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) and the government authority on commodities trade and enterprise.

Formerly called the Burj2020 District, Uptown Dubai is a real estate development consisting of more than 10 million square feet of commercial and residential space. The project was earlier envisioned to create 10,000 news jobs in Dubai.

The previous record for the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle according to the Guinness World Records is measured at 5,428.8 m² (58,435.1 ft²). This was devised by Great East Asia Surveyors & Consultants Co. Ltd, and assembled at the former Kai Tak airport, Hong Kong on 3 November 2002.
