Petronas Twin Towers

Petronas_Twin_Towers_-_MalaysiaThe building was officially opened by the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad on 1 August 1999.

The design of each Tower’s floor plate is based on simple Islamic geometric forms of two interlocking squares, creating a shape of eight-pointed stars.

The Petronas Twin Towers is inspired by Tun Mahathir Mohamad’s vision for Malaysia to be a global player and designed by architect Cesar Pelli.

Towering at 451.9m above street level, this world-renowned icon is currently the world’s tallest twin structure and fifth tallest skyscraper. The Skybridge, a connecting structure between the towers and the world’s highest 2-storey bridge stands at 170 metres high, doubles up as a superb viewing platform. The 88-storey building features glass and steel on the outside, and a traditionally-inspired interior, reflecting Malaysia’s aspirations in moving forward while maintaining its national identity.

Petronas Twin Towers is located in the Kuala Lumpur city centre.

Discover what makes the Twin Towers special through cutting-edge displays and vibrant exhibits. At 360 metres, you’ll be able to see a spire up close and enjoy breathtaking views of Kuala Lumpur.
