Petronas – pride of Kuala Lumpur

The twin towers of Kuala Lumpur are better known as Petronas. It is a must see in the city considering the breath taking view you get from up there. And I heard a few Bond movies were shot there as well.


Up, up & up…..

I have around 100 photos of it. Why? Because I could go up the skybridge only in my third attempt. Every time I went there, I couldn’t go up… came out, clicked some photos and returned home with my drooping face. 🙁


There is only one way…. Forward..

The two towers are connected by a sky bridge. When you want to visit the towers, then the sky bridge is the highest point you can get to.


Made of steel & glass…


with attractive entrance.

And on my lucky day, it was extremely hot since morning. But when my turn came to go up at 2:30, as luck would have it… it started pouring.


Looking up from 41st floor skybridge… and…


… down. As you can see, it was raining heavily on my lucky day.

  2. Such fantastic pictures! You have really done a fine job with your photography. These are amazing towers and no matter how many times I see them- I stand in awe!! Plus, as you know, the shopping inside in incredible- but a bit too pricey for my taste 🙂

    Great post once again!

  3. Mridula,
    Thank you.

    Thank you very much. 🙂

    Shhhh… don’t spill all secrets of inside Petronas. I have many things to share. Will come out slowly. 😀

  4. Hello Nisha. Wow all are magnificent and amazing captures!
    I’ve been to the southern part of Malaysia near Singapore but not yet in the Capital. Hope to see and visit this place one day.
    Thank you for sharing.


  5. They are amazing! I love the first two pics, where you can see the pattern to no end. I’d have taken at least 100 shots too 🙂

  6. Zhu,
    Thank you. I liked the 1st shot very much.

    Who won’t take 100 shots of such a spectacular monument ?

    Yeah, one has to plan the visit. 🙂
    And I have not been to your part of Malaysia. Maybe next time when I go, I’ll try to cover it.

  7. I am fascinated by Petronas too. We stayed in KualaLumpur right across the Petronas at Ascott on the 27th floor. Sitting out in the balcony we had a majestic view everyday for three days. We used to sit outside till the lights went off in the night. I am inspired enough to write a post on it.

  8. Petronas is an extraordinary building – far more regal and striking than some of the other towering buildings around the world. It night it is remarkably lit. Great building and I am glad that your persistence paid off.
