1- The Petronas Tower
One of the most iconic sights in Asia, the Petronas Towers are the tallest twin towers of the world. The towers feature postmodern architecture designed by Cesar Pelli and display Arabic decorations due to the presence of the Muslim community. Visitors are allowed in the tower, even over the sky bridge that joins the two towers together, so you will be able to admire the breathtaking view.
2- The Mariammam Temple
This is the oldest Hindu temple of the city, built in 1853 by the Tamil community and located at the edge of Chinatown. Nowadays, it is an important cultural heritage, but earlier, it was an important place of worship for Indian immigrants. The temple is easily recognizable; it has vibrant and colorful walls featuring a range of Hindu deities and legends.
