The twin Petronas Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004, and remain the tallest twin towers in the world.  They lost the KL height crown in 2019 to the other subject of the video - the 106 story Exchange 106 tower in the new Tun Razak district, currently KL's tallest and the first 100+ story skyscraper in (non-China) Southeast Asia.

Kuala Lumpur's Petronas Towers had a 20+ year run as the tallest buildings in the city, including a half-doze years where they the tallest in the world.  They were displaced by the Exchange 106 Tower, whose reign as the KL height champion will be extremely short.  Why?  Because of the building you'll see in this drone video by fasteddie75.  It's the rapidly rising PNB 118 Tower, a 118 story tower which is rapidly rising towards it design height of 666 meters (just under 2.2k); that's nearly  50% taller than the 106.

Kuala Lumpur's Petronas towers have come to symbolize modern Malaysia.  They stand 452 meters (almost 1.5k feet) over downtown KL and were, for a six year period, the tallest buildings in the world.  While they no longer hold that title, they are still amongst the most recognizable skyscrapers and the most widely recognized "duo" since the demise of the World Trade Center.  Contributor Mumbaimonkey treats us to an amazing aerial look at the towers courtesy of his DJI Mavic Pro drone.
