Each dome is decorated with flower displays and are home to a range of butterflies in various colours, sizes and species.

The domes are climate-controlled, giving the butterflies a comfortable environment and allowing the domes to be open year-round.

As well as the garden there is also a butterfly museum and a butterfly flower park built around a theme linked to the creature.

Dubai Miracle Garden is open 9am to 9pm on weekdays and 9am to 11pm on Friday and Saturdays.
