Petronas Twin Towers

The Petronas Twin Towers (also known as the Petronas Towers or just Twin Towers), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are twin towers and were the world's tallest buildings, before being surpassed by Taipei 101. However, the towers are still the tallest twin buildings in the world. They were the world's tallest buildings from 1998 to 2004 if measured from the level of the main entrance to the structural top, the original height reference used by the US-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat from 1969 (three additional height categories were introduced as the tower neared completion in 1996).

The facade of thf the Petronas Twin Towers features 33 000 panels of unitized curtain wall cladding and 55 000 sq m of laminated glass.The podium of the 88-storey towers contains Suria KLCC,a magnificent shopping mall.The shopping mall is there where you can see the flags:)
