A lovely Malaysian cover!

Received this lovely Malaysian cover posted from Kelantan, Malaysia, courtesy of Khor Kok Keong. Thank you very much! The miniature sheet depicts the iconic Menara Kuala Lumpur ("Menara" is the Bahasa Malaysia word for "Tower"). It was issued in 1996.

Soaring to 421m, and considered a main feature of the city skyline, Menara Kuala Lumpur is currently the fifth tallest freestanding tower in the world. Menara Kuala Lumpur was constructed in 1983 as a telecommunications tower to upgrade the quality of telecommunications and the clarity of broadcast transmissions.

At Menara KL, visitors will also find a theatrette, an amphitheatre, beautiful cascading pools, a fast food restaurant and souvenir shops. A trip to Kuala Lumpur will simply not be complete without a visit to Menara Kuala Lumpur!
