Description
An icon of both Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur, the Petronas Towers stretch 451.9 metres above the ground. This makes them the tallest twin tower structure on Earth, and from 1998 to 2004 they were the world's tallest buildings. Their design has roots within Islamic art, with the design stemming from a symbol featuring on the flags of many islamic nations. Ingame, the Petronas towers give a free Great Person, which spawns near the capital, while it requires Globalization

Requires the Gods & Kings expansion pack, and credit to Co-author Sukritact for the icon

The great person at that point in the game works really well, to my way of thinking.
The +1 faith, +1 GreatPerson on the other hand, as Jise mentions, is underwhelming (read: useless) at this point in the game.

Awesome, agnot3000. Nice to see historical context here!

Nice to see the towers added. My father was the project manager and oversaw the construction.

Hmm... 1 GP at the end of the game? Not very significant, imo. Too bad :(

I worked in Cesar Pelli's office in the mid-90s while this was being designed.... it was a gruelling process. Wish we had these as a building graphic for in-game!
