Suria KLCC is a 6-story shopping mall located at the foot of the Petronas Twin Towers. Suria KLCC is a premier shopping destination with over 300 flagship stores. The shopping mall is situated in Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

History and design[edit]

"Suria" is a native Malay word derived from Sanskrit "surya", meaning "sunshine". Opened in May 1998, the shopping mall was conceived as part of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) project, constructed at the foot of the Petronas Twin Towers. The mall offers views of KLCC Park and Lake Symphony. The mall's floor plan is crescent-shaped, featuring its three ground-level exits wings to Jalan Ampang, Jalan P. Ramlee, and Persiaran Petronas where direct access to the lobby of the towers, the Petronas Philharmonic Hall and Lake Symphony are available. On the concourse level, the Light Rail Transit (LRT) entrance is available at the Ampang end, and the entrance to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is via a tunnel off the centre court.

Management[edit]
