Home to a number of historic architectural sites, the Malaysian capital is one of the most fascinating tourist destinations in Asia that provides the traveller plenty of opportunities to marvel at its man-made wonders.
In recent times, Kuala Lumpur has added several modern
structures to its skyline, which have in turn given the city a
modern profile. Instead of shadowing that which is culturally
valuable, it has accentuated the prominence of the relatively old
structures in the city. While most cities in Malaysia have
undergone similar transformation, Kuala Lumpur has garnered a
considerable amount of global attention for its achievements in
World famous as one of the tallest standing twin towers in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers is an 88-storey building, which was built at a total cost of approximately $1.6 billion. This magnificent addition to Kuala Lumpur's skyline was completed in 1998 under the watchful eye of masterful architect, Cesar Pelli.

attention. Built for commercial use, the Petronas Twin Towers is
officially owned by Petronas while selected sections and floors of
