Ancient Egypt Today

 

Wafi City, Dubai (Source: thatdubaisite).

 Wafi City in Dubai is a multi-purpose complex containing a mall, hotel, restaurants, and  a nightclub.

The complex is modelled on ancient Egypt and includes columns like those at Karnak and small pyramids. There are also pharaonic statues and obelisks.

Wafi City is just once of the many modern developments that have taken ancient Egypt as the theme.

  1. I saw this as we drove by in 2010 but never got a close look! Are the hieroglyphs on the obelisks genuine transcriptions from original obelisks or decorative?
