The great Palm Jumeirah is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and is possessed by the Dubai government. The Palm Jumeirah is created by Nakheel, this is a company which is owned by the Dubai Government and the design and development is done by the architects of HHPC. It is an artificial group of islands which was formed by using the land recuperation. Palm Jumeirah is one of the islands from the three planned islands which are known as Palm Islands (Palm Jumeirah, Palm Deira and Palm Jebel Ali). Amongst all of them Palm Jumeirah is the smallest island. The shape of the Palm Jumeirah is like a palm tree having a trunk and a crown that is having 17 fronds which is surrounded by the curved island. The size of the island is 5 by 5 kilometers and the total area of this place is bigger than 800 football pitches. The crown shape structure is linked with the help of a bridge with the mainland and the curve shaped island is linked to the top of the palm with the help of a subsea tunnel.
