SWF: Kuwait Towers

To view skies and views from across the world, do visit

Sky Watch Friday

The Kuwait Towers is a distinct architectural expression and a cultural icon of Kuwait. The three towers are made of reinforced concrete and located in the Kuwait City.

The main tower of 187 metres height serves as a restaurant and water tower. It has a viewing sphere which rises to 123 meters above sea leval and completes a full round every 30 minutes. The second, and middle tower, stores up to one million gallons of water. The third tower houses equipment to control the flow of electricity and illuminates the two bigger towers

The Kuwait Towers opened to the public in March 1979.

I captured these images on my way back from office last evening.
