The Liberation Tower is the tallest structure in Kuwait and the 10th tallest tower in the world.
Construction of the tower commenced before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and construction resumed after Saddam's forces were expelled. Upon completion in 1993, the tower was renamed the Liberation Tower, symbolizing Kuwait's liberation from Iraq.
The tower contains a revolving restaurant and observation platform (in the first disc-shaped pod; now closed to the public for security reasons), and also houses radio and other telecommunications offices. The structure stands at 1,221 ft at its pinnacle.
