Most of Malaysia's tallest buildings can be found in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur.

The Petronas Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 and remain the tallest twin towers in the world. They were the tallest buildings in Malaysia from 1998 to 2017 standing at a height of 451.9 metres (1,483 ft), until The Exchange 106 took its place with its current height of 492 metres (1,614 ft).
