Attractions of KL Tower

KL Tower Head

The beautifully sculptured ceiling of the lift lobby is worth having a look. Glass crystals were used to construct the ceiling. It is to represent the 7 layers of the sky or Muqarnas.

It is to symbolize man's journey towards perfection in the world. Craftsmen from the city of Isfahan, Iran, were deployed to build the Muqarnas. By the way Isfahan is a twin-city of Kuala Lumpur.

There are 3 Muqarnas in the tower. Two of them are made of glass and you can see them in the lift lobby at the upper ground floor. The other, and largest, Muqarna is at the exterior base of the tower head. You will be able to see it from the pedestrian mall.

Forest in the City

KL Tower Head

One of the difficulties during the construction of the KL Tower was to avoid destroying the 100 year old Jelutong tree or Dyera Costulata.

As a result, an additional RM430, 000 was spent to preserve the tree. You will be able to see this beauty of a tree right next to the tower.

The Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is a lovely treat for nature lovers.

You do not have to leave the city and travel far to enjoy the greens. You will find flora and fauna indigenous to the region, very old trees like the Jelutong Tree that moved the tower and an open air gym in the recreational park.

Enjoy your nature and jungle walk right here in the city.
