Petronas Twin Towers
The Petronas Twin Towers, or Petronas Towers, is Malaysia’s most iconic landmark and architectural achievement; perfectly symbolising the growth of Kuala Lumpur from humble tin-mining town to 21st-century metropolis. Located in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle, the silver stainless-steel clad towers first opened in 1999 and were designed by world-renowned architect César Pelli. The towers incorporate many Islamic influences, such as having five tiers to represent the five pillars of Islam and 63-metre-long spires resembling the minarets of a mosque. Standing at 451.9 metres, the 88 storey skyscrapers were once the tallest buildings in the world before being overtaken by Taipei 101. Today, they remain the world’s tallest twin towers and a must-see for all ages when visiting Kuala Lumpur.
