Reflecting AlUla’s Beauty, the World’s Largest Mirrored Building

Watch The Video

Meaning ‘mirror’ or ‘reflection’ in Arabic, Maraya is a stunning piece of art set in the desert canyon of Ashar Valley. Designed to blend into the surrounding landscape, it rises from the sand like a mirage. The state-of-the-art structure is covered in 9,740 mirrored panels reflecting AlUla's beauty and, according to Guinness World Records, making it the largest mirrored building in the world.

Maraya also celebrates AlUla's significant role in history as a crossroads of cultures for centuries. The mirrors themselves become a contemporary canvas, reflecting the area’s remarkable heritage. And while the building itself stands as a work of art, it was also designed as a fully functioning multi-purpose venue and centrepiece of AlUla's emerging cultural scene on a global scale.

Maraya’s auditorium has hosted a wide range of world-class musical performances by global icons such as Alicia Keys, John Legend, OneRepublic, Usher and Seal, and regional stars like Mohamed Abdo, Angham, Majid Al Mohandis, Kadim Al Sahir and Assala Nasri. Art exhibitions have included the hugely successful ‘FAME: Andy Warhol in AlUla’ and What Lies Within, plus it played host to the UNWTO award ceremony – with AlUla Old Town Village receiving the title of Best Tourism Village along with 32 other villages across the world. The venue also caters to conferences, business meetings and other events, and atop it all is the rooftop restaurant, Maraya Social – a stunning and innovative dining concept by British chef Jason Atherton.
