·   Sri Mahamariamman Temple. This intimidating pyramid is one of sights to behold. It is a classical Southern Indian Hindu shrine. The soaring gopuram or tower exhibits dozens of delicately engraved statues of idols coming from Hindu pantheon. It was completed in 1873 and features gold elements and expensive stones which are parts of the style. An elaborate silver chariot within the temple is being paraded along the streets in pious celebrations.

·   Museum of Islamic Art. It is located at Jalan Perdana, Kuala Lumpur. It is a large registry of international and local Islamic art - from fabrics and carpets to superb demonstrated medieval replica of sacred Quran. Research and library facilities are made accessible too.

·   Masjid jamek Bandaraya. Well known as Friday Mosque. This British-styled Muslim temple has a pink fascia which grasps the sunset rays marvelously. It was established by A.B. Hubback back in 1909. The palm trees as well as the setting along the Klang and Gombak river banks grant a serene setting for your contemplations or prayers. Here, visitors are gladly welcomed apart from during the prayer moments.

·   Petronas Twin Towers -along Kuala Lumpur City Center or KLCC. At the heart of the business area, the twin glass towers give you a dizzying image and architectural achievement. The Petronas Twin Towers, truly stunning when lighted at night, were the tallest buildings in the world until the Taipei 101 Tower was built in 2004. These towers stand roughly 1,500 feet tall with its 88 stories. A glass footpath hooks up the two towers at around the middle point. You can go up the footpath only that limited tickets are given daily. Come early, so you can have a spot. One of Malaysia’s biggest shopping centers, the Suria in KLCC, encloses the Petronas towers.

·   Menara Kuala Lumpur. It has a spiral top and is among the tallest towers in the world. Decorated with Islamic designs and almost 1,400 feet high, this building is among the most prominent landmarks in Kuala Lumpur. The unique spire was thought to be motivated by the conventional spinning top of Malays. The superior ground point is always open to public. It offers restaurants and shops. You can go to its observation floor for a panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur.

·   Lake Gardens Park. This is Kuala Lumpur's very famous park which was constructed in 1880's. Rowboats as well as playground are accessible here. The 200 plus extensive acres are perfect for relaxation and enjoyment.

·   Batu Caves. These limestone cliff caves are sanctuaries for worship among local Indians. It is home to a Hindu shrine and a temple cave frequented by many tourists annually.
