Kuwait Tourism
The Liberation Tower

The Liberation Tower is the one of the most striking tourist attractions for visitors to the Kuwait city. The towers were so named to mark the liberation of Kuwait from Iraqi invasion. Kuruvilla Varghese and Haider Mirza Abdul were two of the most prominent engineers associated with the projects who also penned down a book on the same. The construction was completed in 1996, which took about 5 years and 7 months.

Features of the Kuwait Liberation Tower

The Kuwait Liberation Tower stands at a staggering height of 372 meters or 1,220 feet above the ground level. The elevators that facilitate movement in the towers move at a speed of 6.4m/s The tower is so designed that in case of a strong wind, the tip is allowed to sway a lateral distance of 5meters. The restaurant in the tower is one of the most luxurious ones in the city of Kuwait. A revolving viewing center offers the opportunity of getting the best view of the Kuwait city.

Being the 5th largest telecommunication tower, the Kuwait Liberation Tower is even taller than the Eiffel Tower of Paris.

Travel Quotes:
