See an iconic postmodern structure at Petronas Twin Towers, a symbol of the modern nation and at one time the tallest buildings in the world. After seven years of construction, they officially opened in 1999 and include a retail center, park, twin spires, and two-story skybridge connecting the 41st and 42nd floors of each tower. The steel and glass facade displays a proud Islamic aesthetic influence. Walk the bridge between the two 451.9 m (1,483 ft) skyscrapers for unimpeded views of the city, and admire the well-designed interiors of these architectural landmarks.

  • The Petronas Twin Towers at Kuala Lumpur City Centre is one of the best creature in the world. It represent a tremendous achievement in structural engineering design. The slender towers soar 452 meters above Kuala Lumpur and culminate in gleaming stainless-steel pinnacles. Their dramatic Islamic-themed design is enhanced by a sky bridge at floors 41 and 42 that connects the towers and creates a visual gateway to a major public park. The sky bridge was designed with slender structural members rather than heavy trusses to be compatible with the architecture of the buildings and was constructed more than 150 meters above street level. It accommodates independent movement of the towers as they sway due to wind loads. The night view of the towers are wonderful.
  • Wonderful place to hang around. Evening light and water fountain is amazing. One of the best I have seen in south Asia. Amazing ambience in the night. It's important to book in advance if you wanted to go on top of the tower and its closed on Sundays. Well designed for catching public transport. Just cross the road you will find metro .Such an amazing building. Best to see it both during day time and at night. We went about 5 o'clock and took some photos in the day from the front. Then browsed the shopping centre and had dinner. Then went out the back to the park at around 7:30 took some great photos and then saw the fountain show at 8pm.There are also shows at 9 pm and 10pm. The show isn't that great but the park is pretty and relaxing to sit and have a good view of the towers.
