    Just think of a city with skyline perforated by campaniles, skyscrapers, Mogul styled domes? Now, think of one with leafy canopy of banyan trees and streets lined with food vendors? Finally, merge the two – that’s Kuala Lumpur for you.  

    The KLites of today are segregated by a smattering generation of the Malay Tin and Chinese explorers who established the city chiseling it out of the virgin jungle. By the late 19th century, British finally entered the capital of Peninsular Malaysia and went ahead erecting grand colonial buildings everywhere in the country. Kuala Lumpur had then been in existence for only a couple of decades then hence it couldn’t do much. Ever since then, the city has witnessed multiple history-defining moments for Malaysia. In the year 1957, it was at the Stadium Merdeka that the first prime ministers of Malaysia Tunku Abdul Rahman imprinted his first 7 time in the air and declared independence for the country.  

    A quintessential part of the flamboyant mix is the incense arched, beautifully embellished temples and mosques of the different Indian, Chinese and Malay communities. This veneration to the ancient cultures is well equated with the co-existing modern contemporary world. It is an appetite that is visible in Malaysia’s contemporary design, art and architecture. Further, the enthusiastic cutting-edge architecture and the riverbank-regeneration project once finalized the new Merdeka PNB 118 tower, will be towering the iconic Petronas Towers.
