Burj Dubai is now Burj Khalifa

Dubai: January 4 2010, The Burj Dubai now "Burj Khalifa" was unveiled at a glittering ceremony by Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai this evening.

But in changing the tower’s name from Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa, in honor of the president of Abu Dhabi, Dubai revealed a rare streak of humility consistent with its diminished economic condition.

The 160-storey building built at an estimated cost of $1.5 billion attracted hundreds and thousands of onlookers for the spectacular inauguration ceremony that combined a dazzling sound and light show. Now Burj Khlifa is the Tallest Tower in the World
