The Maraya concert hall, named for the Arabic word for "reflection," in Al Ula was awarded the Guinness record when officials verified the cuboid structure measures 31,955 square feet.

The designers of the building said the mirrored exterior was designed to reflect and highlight the natural beauty of the surrounding desert.
