The former headquarters of Petronas, Kompleks Dayabumi was designed by Nik Mohammed and built in 1981. In profile, the 35-storey marble-clad tower, cloaked in delicate fretwork screens, forms a four-pointed star intersected by a square, a recurring symbol in Islamic art. To get here, walk over the footbridge behind Central Market.
