Why to Visit

Fine Points of The Petronas Towers Under The Shadow
Pentronas TowersThese are the jewels within the precincts of the Twin Towers.

Sky Bridge
A unique suspended bridge, which connects the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floors, provides mesmerising views of the sprawling city. The foremost attraction of the Twin Towers, it is also called podium, since visitors desiring to go to higher levels have to change elevators here.

Visitors have to obtain passes (limited) which are free, but are served on first-come, first-served basis.

Soothing greenery and water games provide striking contrast to the concrete towers. Known for its unique concept, the park provides fountain pool with an incorporated light show, children's playground, wading pool, patterned footpaths, and jogging track which are set among selected native trees and shrubs.

Suria KLCC Shopping Centre
Fanciful rollicking KLCC shopping centre sits on the base of the Twin Towers. It hosts expensive fashion boutiques, health care stores, bookshops, computer shops, jewellers, cinema, a concert hall and an art gallery. Lovers of brand shopping can find it very useful, for the prices are much lower than western countries.

Food Courts
To satisfy your taste buds, nice eateries are always ready. Scrumptious Asian and Western food is available at the food courts on the second and on the fourth floor. Upmarket restaurants serve the food-lovers on level four while cafes and bakeries provide culinary delight to the visitors throughout the shopping centre and the ground floor.
Making of the Tower
Construction of the Petronas Twin Towers commenced in 1991, on the site of a racetrack The depth of the bedrock compelled the builders to dig deep, sometimes to 120 metres. Over 500 truck-loads moved the excavated earth every night. Then, through a period of 54 hours, 13,200 cubic metres of concrete was poured for each tower.

A 21-metre high retaining wall was raised from the base, which had a perimeter length of more than 1 kilometre. Construction of the superstructure was started in 1994. The towers took final shape in 1996.

Interestingly, two separate construction companies were given the contract for each tower. Construction work was undertaken primarily at night and finishing work was accomplished during the day.

The Objective
The making of the Petronas Towers was part of a large burst of construction that marked the country's 1990s economic boom. The objective of the mammoth project was to provide the capital with an efficient and modern centre for urban activity, trade and commerce.
