Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

 

Jonathan from Singapore sent me this amazing postcard of my favourite structure(s) in the world. The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, were once the tallest structures in the world. From 1998 to 2004, no building could rival these twin towers in height. That was until the Taipei 101 was built of course. They do, however, remain the highest twin structures in the world. Standing at 451.9 meters, makes it clear that the visionaries behind the building of the twins were not fooling around. It was completed in 1994 at a cost of $1.6 billion. That is an exorbitant amount of money but were it not for that kind of money being spent on it, I’d have had to find me another favourite structure, now wouldn’t I? Thanks Jonathan, it really is a jewel in my collection!
