The Petronas Twin Towers are the 12th tallest building in the world. But they hold the record for the world’s tallest twins. They are as iconic to Malaysia as the Eiffel Tower is to France.

The towers are built on leftover land that got repurposed to ease the increasingly heavy traffic in the capital, Kuala Lumpur.

The Twin Towers are a mega project by the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad. They symbolize Malaysia’s importance as a global power in the 21st century.

Construction began in March 1993 and finished in August 1999.

The towers are 1,482.6 feet tall. Argentine American skyscraper specialist Cesar Pelli designed the towers.
