Home > Kuala Lumpur Attraction > Kuala Lumpur Tower - Menara KL

kl tower
The construction of the KL Tower which began on October 1991, was a 3-phase process. The first phase was the widening of Jalan Punchak and the excavation of soil from the construction site. This phase went on until 15 August 1992.

Kuala Lumpur Tower is one of the tallest concrete towers in the world, standing at 421m and built with 45,000 cubic metres of sturdy concrete. Designed with vertical ribs on the external surface, the Tower weighs 100,000 tonnes and was built on no-piling, freestanding land. Menara Kuala Lumpur opulently stands as the tallest tower in Southeast Asia.

Menara Kuala Lumpur ranks fourth amongst the tallest telecommunications towers in the world and was constructed over a period of four years and completed in May 1996. Menara Kuala Lumpur is designed to withstand wind pressures of up to 90mph. Menara Kuala Lumpur is a member of the prestigious World Federation of Great Towers.

The four tallest towers in the world are CN Tower in Canada at 553m, Ostankino Tower in Russia at 537m, Shanghai Tower in China at 468m followed by Menara Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia at 421m.

Besides the panoramic view, Menara KL has something for the city-dwelling, nature enthusiast. The verdant green surrounding Menara KL is the Bukit Nanas Forest - the only oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country. Age-old trees, flora and fauna indigenous to tropical climes, the tale of the Jelutong Tree that moved the Menara and a recreational park with open air gym are there for your exploration.

In the forest one can find colourful butterflies, insects, monkeys, squirrels and exotic birds in their natural habitat. The forest also contains ferns, creepers and climbers, Palmae spp. and other indigenous plants.

The Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city, in between Jalan Ampang and Jalan Raja Chulan. It covers an area of 10.05 hectares and is considered the 'Green Lung' of Kuala Lumpur. It is a sanctuary to a wonderful array of flora and fauna which is unique to our tropical nature.

It is easy to get to the Forest Park as it is surrounded by a network of excellent roads. To reach the Forest Park, visitors can use their own vehicles or public transportation. The main road is Jalan Ampang, Jalan Gereja and Jalan Raja Chulan.

Visiting hours: 7.00am to 6.00pm daily including weekends and public holidays.
Entrance is Free of charge.
