Menara Taming Sari is named after the famous kris in Malay folklore. It is believed to have been wielded by the legendary Melakan warrior Hang Tuah, and is fabled to grant physical invulnerability to its wielder. . Measuring 110 metres in height, its revolving structure offers a 360-degree panoramic view of Malacca town and beyond.
