Divisions and rivalry have been around for ages. And although will be related with negative effects, if not for this rivalry, the feeling of being better than the other person, group of people or even the whole society, we would not have so many achievements in science, sport, culture or architecture development.
Every year, new skyscrapers are being built in the world. However, ordinary, several-dozen-meter buildings are not enough. Man wants to build higher and higher. It does not matter if the structure is to become a symbol of closeness to God, or even to exceed it (like the Biblical tower of Babylon), or to help increase the value of the surrounding land, or simply become a showcase of the city and increase the inflow of tourists. What is important, however, is that the construction of huge skyscrapers in the world is in full swing, and we, ordinary tourists, we can admire them freely – just like the dignified Menara and those impeccable twin towers – Petronas.
Petronas Towers and Menara Tower are two exalted towers competing with tourists for attention. Located in the center of Kuala Lumpur give the capital an unforgettable skyline of the city.
Petronas Twin Towers are identical towers connected by a small bridge. They reach a height of 452 meters, which gave them the first place on the list of the tallest buildings in the world in the years 1998-2004. Petronas Towers proudly represent Kuala Lumpur in truly postmodern style. Metal, steel frames and external walls covered with glass is a futuristic, original object, which absolutely can not be missed during a visit to Malaysia.
Menara Tower, like the Islamic Arts Museum, the National Planetarium Negara, or Dayabumi Complex is the architecture built on the theme of the national religion of Malaysia – Islam. Arabic calligraphy, dome, and minaret everywhere are just some of the features that characterize this artistic style. The Menara Tower (421m) is only 31 meters shorter than the Petronas Tower and has entered the 28th position in the list of the tallest buildings in the world.
Man has so far erected 135 buildings exceeding 300 m in height. And although Petronas and Menara are no longer in the forefront, they occupy a very high position on my list.
