EPG issues stamps on Burj Khalifa 6th anniversary

Emirates Post Group (EPG) today issued stamps on the 6 th anniversary of Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, in association with global developer Emaar Properties. The commemorative stamp depicts Burj Khalifa rising majestically above Downtown Dubai at sunset in all its resplendent glory.

Chief Commercial Officer of EPG Mr. Ibrahim Bin Karam commented: "Emirates Post Group is delighted to issue stamps on Burj Khalifa, which is a symbol of pride and the pinnacle of international achievement for the UAE. For six years Burj Khalifa has been in the international spotlight and we are very happy to commemorate the 6th anniversary of its opening through these beautiful stamps."

Ahmad Al Falasi, Executive Director - Group Operations, Emaar Properties, said: "Burj Khalifa is a global icon and the pride of our nation. One of the world's most visited tourist attractions, it is also a compelling testament to the can-do ability of Dubai and the city's focus on promoting global partnerships. An architectural marvel that pushes the boundaries of engineering and construction, Burj Khalifa has become one of the most photographed monuments in the past six years. The launch of the commemorative stamp is a fitting tribute to the vision behind Burj Khalifa and the years of hard work by thousands of professionals around the world that went into building it."

The stamps, available in all post offices, will also be on sale at the retail kiosks at At the Top, Burj Khalifa, the observation deck. They have been issued in denomination of AED 3, along with a souvenir sheet and a first day cover.

A 'post office corner' will also be introduced to At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY world's highest observation deck. Here, visitors can send friends and family the special souvenir post card, with the official stamp, from 'Burj Khalifa Heights'.

At 828 metres (2,716.5 ft), the 200 plus storey Burj Khalifa has 160 habitable levels, the most of any building in the world.
