Much of the world recognizes these towers in profile, if not in name. While most people would call this the Petronas Towers, locals call it KLCC - the Kuala Lumpur City Center.
The Kuala Lumpur City Center boasted the tallest skycrapers in the world for a short while, but their eclipse by taller towers in other countries hasn't faded their popularity or the pride in which they are held. The towers contain, almost entirely, office space, but also have a symphony hall tucked below their base. The 6 story mall includes 1 level of below-grade retail, and 3 additional levels of parking below grade. KLCC has its own metro stop, and a dedicated freeway exit. This is one of the most popular malls in Kuala Lumpur.
The Wikipedia entry describes KLCC further (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuala_Lumpur_City_Centre).
