Petronas Towers

Built in 1999, some call it Malaysia's new icon. To others, it is the symbol of Malaysia's great leap forward.

With PETRONAS, Malaysia's national petroleum corporation as its anchor tenant, the 88-storey PETRONAS Twin Towers is the new unmistakable identity for Malaysia.

The PETRONAS Twin Towers is set against the backdrop of the beautifully landscaped Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) park. The development, built based on a holistic approach, combining business with art, science and nature also included a symphonic concert hall at the podium between the twin towers, an international class art gallery and an interactive petroleum science discovery centre in the adjoining Suria KLCC Mall.

Soaring 452 metres into the sky, the PETRONAS Twin Towers is a national pride to the people of Malaysia.

The Skybridge, a major attraction at the PETRONAS Twin Towers, symbolises a gateway to the future and is used to facilitate movement between the two towers. It can also function as an escape route in case of emergencies.
