PETRONAS Twin Towers

Once the tallest buildings in the world, the 88-storey PETRONAS Twin Towers are now celebrated as the world’s tallest twin structures. Inspired by Islamic architecture, this gleaming mega-structure – standing 452 metres tall – retained its claim to fame until 2004 when Taipei's 101 was built measuring 508 metres – and with 101 floors.

Declared the tallest buildings in the world when they were completed in 1998 – surpassing the 442-metre-tall Willis Tower in Chicago, U.S.A – these twin wonders, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, contain a complex of office buildings, conference halls, a sprawling 50-acre park and an upmarket shopping complex. Designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates, the buildings primarily house the corporate headquarters of the PETRONAS Company and are joined at the 41st and 42nd floors (175 metres above street level) by a 58-metre long double-decker Sky Bridge.

One of the most notable features of the PETRONAS Twin Towers is the Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS concert hall – Southeast Asia’s leading venue for classical music. Located in between the two towers, the architectural design of the facility – which has garnered praise as one of the world’s best concert halls – is based upon the time-honoured design of 19th century European concert halls. The hall has played host to some of the world’s most respected musical talents and is home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.

Another major attraction of the Twin Jewels of Kuala Lumpur is the Petrosains Science Centre – an interactive science discovery centre. The gallery showcases exhibits related to the petroleum industry, from petroleum’s origin in the age of the dinosaurs to its latest oil-based products. Located at level 4 of KLCC the centre has many interesting attractions including a 3-D theatre – one of its most popular attractions.
