Step into a fascinating world of marine life at Aquaria KLCC in Kuala Lumpur. This undersea centre is the home to a plethora of marine life.
Residing at Aquaria KLCC are over 250 different species of land and aquatic animals presenting a diverse glimpse of life under the sea. Some of the more interesting creatures include the potbelly seahorse, veiled chameleon, savannah monitor and the albino axolotl.
Aquaria KLCC also undertakes conservation through its many programmes dedicated to the preservation of sea turtles. An important part of this project allows visitors to adopt a turtle of their own.
In Merdeka Square, a black marble plaque marks the spot where the Malaysian flag was hoisted for the first time on 31 August, 1957.
The plaza is also home to an open-air amphitheatre. Surrounding the Square are many buildings of historical interest such as the Royal Selangor Club and the National History Museum.
Petronas Twin Towers
Set against the skies of Kuala Lumpur is the Petronas Twin Towers. Construction of the towers was completed in 1997.
Although this iconic structure was never envisioned to be the tallest building in the world, it laid claim to that title for many years. Today the Petronas Twin Towers is considered the tallest twin structure in the world.
Soaring 452 metres into the city skyline, Petronas Twin Towers’ architectural design is based on basic Islamic geometric forms. The Islamic principle of ‘unity within unity, harmony, stability and rationality’ is said to be the focal point of the building.
An amazing combination of glass and steel, the towers feature a Skybridge that is easily accessible to tourists. The Skybridge connects the 41st and 42nd floors of the towers and provides panoramic views of the city.
