Add a Point to the Map

The Petronas Twin Towers were unveiled as the world's tallest building at 1,483 ft on August 31, 1999 and occupied that numero uno spot for half a decade until Taipei 101 (1,667 ft) overtook them in 2004.

Built on a prime location in Malaysia's capital, the Twin Towers examplify Malaysia's sky-high aspirations and ambitions, and have since become a symbol of the nation's success.

The Petronas Twin Towers were designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates (USA) together with KLCC architects.

The building is a striking glass-and-steel combination with floor plans based on an eight-pointed star, a geometric pattern typified in Islamic architecture symbolizing unity, harmony, stability and rationality.

At 175 metres above street level, the Towers are joined via a 192-ft-long Skybridge. As a major attraction, at least 1,000 free tickets to the double-decker Skybridge are given out daily at Suria KLCC.
