Petronas Twin Towers at KLCC

*Our home called Kuantan* has been out of posting for the last few days while we have been on holiday in Kuala Lumpur (KL).

One cannot visit KL without going to Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). And the heartbeat of KLCC is the quite majestic Petronas Twin Towers, the tallest such buildings in the world. (There are higher single towers, but these twin towers are the top of their class).

The Petronas Twin Towers are huge. It's only when you stand right beside them or view them from higher ground that you realise just how much they dwarf everything else in sight.

I always stand in awe of these marvellous towers, the symbol of Malaysia and KL. Just as they cause us to look upwards, they symbolise the future growth and potential of Malaysia. It also reminds us that we look upwards to a higher Being for our guidance and help.

The Petronas Twin Towers is an incredible structure and marvel of engineering.

Here they are viewed from a construction site:

This is a view inside Suria KLCC, a shopping mall beneath the Petronas Twin Towers

The Twin Towers from the back. Suria KLCC shopping mall stands below the wonderful structure.

This is what you call 'a room with a view'

Yes, this is the condo unit of my friend's place at KLCC, with the most perfect view you could want. The following pictures are taken from the 18th floor of this condo.

The raindrops on the window provided the perfect foreground to the KL skyline dominated by the Petronas Twin Towers in the background.

I could take photos of these magnificent towers all day . . . 

They look even prettier as night sets in . . . 

This final picture was taken at another friend's house, nearby Jalan Ampang. Look at the beams of light shooting into the night sky from the tips of the Petronas Twin Towers. To the left of the picture is the KL Tower.


  1. Too bad we didn't spend too much time looking around Suria KLCC. Lovely pictures though honey! Good job.

  2. Great perspective on some of these photos dunc! Love the raindrops too.

  3. What an amazing building I am not surprised you enjoy taking photos of it!

  4. Fidelia, we were just way too tired to spend any longer there, after trekking all the way to the aquaria and back!

    Rachel, my dear sister, so good to see you contributing to my blog! I really like that raindrops picture as well. In fact, that's the one picture so far I've printed out for my journal :) Thanks for coming over!

  8. A second thought Duncan, if memory serves me I think I saw where a robbery was done there in an action movie.

  9. Wow! Wonderful pictures with a perfect light in the capture of these beautiful towers. The prospects are truly spectacular, I like them all day and night. Greetings.
