The other day,descided to go to Kuwait Towers.Had been there many times, but the area is such,you will love to go again and again.The panoramic view of the sea and the city near the Towers are beyond words. One can spend hours in such spectacular atmosphere. The area remains bursting with activities. One can notice people swimming, catching fish, sailing around in the sea, leisurely moving around, taking pictures or having good time with family or friends. There is ample space for car parking so that visitors don’t face any problem. The date trees around and near the towers campus makes the place more enticing.It stands majestically and elegantly on the water front in the Arabian Gulf Road n are regarded as the symbol of Kuwait.Designed by Sune Lindstrom and Malene Bjorn from Sweden and built by Energoproject,a company from Belgrade,Serbia,it was opened to public in March 1979.The towers consist of two towers and a third pole feeding them with electricity. The tallest tower, 187 meters high, holds two spheres. The upper sphere at the height of 120 meters has a viewing point, a café and a gift shop. This sphere has a revolving observation area, with one full turn every half hour.The breathtaking view of the city from the viewing point is awesome.The photos of destruction of the tower by the Iraqi troops during the Iraqi invasion in 1990 are displayed in the walls.
The intention of the Iraqi troops was to destroy the very symbol of Kuwait. The towers were badly destroyed as they attacked it with missiles. But it was rebuilt and today’s towers symbolize the affection, devotion, tenacity of the Kuwaiti people for their country. At the height of 82 meters there are four food joints which include Al-Ufuq restaurant, Le Café, Waha and Al Joon cafeteria.Then there is the Dasman Hall where special parties and business events are held and on the ground floor is the Horizon Restaurant.So you need not worry about food when you visit Kuwait Towers.
The middle tower is a water reservoir containing 2 million gallons of water in two tanks. The third tower, which is 11.60 meters high, is a lighthouse which illuminates the architectural wonder with 96 concealed spotlights. The tops of these towers are finished in a needle shape and are made of flaring, plasticized aluminum plates which shine day and night, adding to their magic. With an entry fees of 1.5Dinar, the tower remains open to the public from 9am to 11.30pm.
Just adjacent to the towers is the Aqua Park,the first and biggest water park of the Arab Gulf Region
