At over 2,716.5 feet, Burj Khalifa holds records for the tallest building in the world, tallest free-standing structure in the world, highest number of stories in the world, highest occupied floor in the world, highest outdoor observation deck in the world, elevator with the longest travel distance in the world as well as the tallest service elevator in the world.
The world’s tallest skyscraper, Burj Khalifa, was lit up in tri-colours – saffron, white and green to mark the 68th Republic Day of India.
Three times last evening, the musical fountains adjacent to the world’s tallest building leapt to the strains of Jai Ho and Vande Mataram as a mile high electronic flag draped the Burj. The same inspiring sequence will be repeated at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 this evening.
“Tonight we celebrate India’s 68th Republic Day with a spectacular LED illumination of the Indian National flag on #BurjKhalifa! #India,” the official Twitter account of Burj Khalifa tweeted in both English and Arabic languages.
