The major attraction of the tallest attraction in Kuala Lumpur city is its alluring position. Nuzzled on top of the Bukit Nanas- a jungle park, Menar tower in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is now a must-visit landmark if you fancy flora and fauna. During the development of the skyscraper, the natural surroundings of the oldest gazetted forest reserve were kept untouched in order to preserve stability in the environment. Originally used as a communication base, the tower is, unquestionably, one of the most famous things to do in Kuala Lumpur.

Embodying the lively Islamic heritage of Malaysia, the architectural fashion of the tower represents Islamic tilework, Arabic texts, archetypal Islamic floral, and some geometric designs. The structure of Menara Kuala Lumpur also incorporates ‘Muqarans’- a kind of corbel used in classical Persian and Islamic design, which emphasises the importance of this attraction as an architectural legacy of the Islam religion. What’s more? As you tour the main lobby of the structure, the gleaming glass-made domes may just leave you in awe.
