- Kuwait City
Let's visit the Kuwait Towers which are a group of three slender towers in Kuwait City, standing on a promontory into the Persian Gulf. They were the sixth, and last, group in the larger Kuwait Water Towers system of 34 towers and they were built in a style considerably different from the other five groups.
The Kuwait Towers were officially inaugurated in March 1979 and are regarded as a landmark and symbol of modern Kuwait. The main tower is 187 metres high and carries two spheres.
The lower sphere holds in its bottom half a water tank of 1,200,000 US gallons and in its upper half there is a restaurant that accommodates 90 people, a café, a lounge and a reception hall. The upper sphere rises to 123 metres (404 ft) above sea level and completes a full turn every 30 minutes, holds a café.
The second tower is 147 metres (482 ft) high and serves as a water tower. The third tower holds equipment needed to illuminate the two larger towers
