Meaning of “Meydan” ميدان

Trans-littered as “meydan”,  this arabic word suggests a place where people congregate and compete, a sort of area or square. It is something similar to the ancient Roman Forum (Latin: Forum Romanum, Italian: Foro Romano), a rectangular plaza, originally a marketplace. The Forum Magnum, or simply the Forum, was for centuries the center of Roman public life: the site of triumphal processions and elections, venue for public speeches, criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches, and nucleus of commercial affairs. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city’s great men.

We find similar word “Maidan” in Ukrainian also, with the meaning of “square”.

Meydan is also the brand given to a collection of luxury hotels & resorts, providing its guests and customers with a myriad of unique and iconic places to meet, and to the equestrian club where the Dubai World Cup is taking place since 2010.Meydan is also the brand given to a collection of luxury hotels & resorts, providing its guests and customers with a myriad of unique and iconic places to meet, and to the equestrian club where the Dubai World Cup is taking place since 2010
