This hub is basically a sequence of a previous one which discussed the Palm Jumeirah. Please follow the link: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Eighth-Wonder-of-the-World
In this hub, there will be another wonder which is the Palm Jebel Ali.
Palm Jebel Ali is an artificial archipelago and is 50 % larger than Jumeirah palm, one of the largest artificial islands ever built by man. Construction started in 2002 and is expected to be finished in 2009. Also, it’s planned that Jebel Ali Palm will accommodate more than 1.7 million by the year 2022 which is a tremendous work for mankind to construct such a behemoth monument like that. This project will include: six marinas, a water theme park, 'SeaVillage', homes built on stilts above the water and many other works of art. The amazing thing about this palm that it will have a boardwalks which spells an Arabic Poem by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Ruler of Dubai) which can be seen from outer space. The poem says:
Take wisdom from the wise
It takes a man of vision to write on water
Not everyone who rides a horse is a jockey
Great men rise to greater challenges.
Also, Nakheel, developer of the palm, invited several architects to design one of the buildings on the palm. Royal Haskoning won the contest with their marvelous design that can be seen below:For more information, please visit the Palms official website: http://www.thepalm.ae/
