In fact, they remain the world’s tallest twin towers until today! This 451.9 metre tall behemoth combines elements of Malaysia’s Islamic cultural heritage with cutting-edge building technology in its design [1]. The result is an iconic symbol of Malaysia, a must-see tourist destination complete with food, shopping, music and nature.
