Twin Towers

Friends brought me this souvenier from Malaysia. Sheepishly, I admit, I had never heard of the Twin Towers of Kuala Lumpur.

With the help of google and Wikepedia, here is what I have learned...

The Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were the world's tallest buildings from 1998 to 2004, before being surpassed by the Taipei 101. However, the towers are still the tallest twin buildings and office building in the world.

The Petronas Towers were the setting for several scenes in the 1999 film Entrapment starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The towers were also feature din three levels of the game Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. The PS2 game Burnout Dominator features the Twin Towers as Spiritual Towers. For the Bollywood fans - The Petronas Towers are featured in the film, Don - The Chase Begins Again!
