Burj Khalifa tower-The tallest building in the world

Burj Khalifa tower

The tallest building in the world has opened in the Gulf emirate of Dubai on 3rd Jan 2010.  But the 828-meter tower formerly known as the Burj Dubai has been renamed the Burj Khalifa, to honor the leader of neighboring Abu Dhabi, who gave Dubai $10 billion last month to help repay its debts.

Not only does the Burj Khalifa have more usable floors than any other skyscraper ever built, but it also has the world’s highest observation deck on the 124th floor and the highest swimming pool on the 76th.

The building is so tall that it is ten degrees Celsius cooler at the top than at the base.
