Designed by Liong Lie Architects, Mihrab is a shopping area inspired by the kaleidoscopic folklore of the East, where you can buy exotic food as well as non-food products from countries like Iran, India and Afghanistan.

To enhance this rich exotic experience the Mihrab is designed with a modern exotic twist: there’s a 1600 m² gold coloured ceiling, many arches, colourful pathways with lively patterns and a fountain with gold coloured tiles that sparkles in the centre of the Mihrab market – a central resting point for the weary shopper.
