Discover the inspiration behind the name

The Ibn Battuta Mall which is known to be the largest shopping mall in the entire world is segregated into six different parts which are Egypt, China, India, Tunisia, Andalusia, and Persia which are the six different locations the Arabic explorer visited. These locations have shops where you can purchase items that are unique for their own countries and it will seem like a world tour under one roof.
