Top 10 Tallest Building on the World – Top 10 Gedung Tertinggi di Dunia #2nd part

I’ve publish 3 tallest bulding in the world. There are Burj Kalifa in Dubai, Taipei 101, and Shanghai World Financial Center. And then, after I surfed around many page, I was found that Taipei 101 is not the second tallest building. But it was shifted by the new building that recently opened in 2011, by Mecca Clock Tower. And here we go, the brief information about the structure.

Saya telah mempublish 3 gedung tertinggi pertama di dunia. Di antaranya Burj Kalifa di Dubai, Taipei 101, dan Pusat Keuangan Dunia Shanghai. Kemudian, setelah mengelilingi beberapa page, saya menemukan bahwa Taipei 101 bukanlah gedung tertinggi kedua di dunia. Akan tetapi sudah digeser oleh gedung baru yang diresmikan pada tahun 2011, oleh Menara Jam Mekah. Dan berikut ini, informasi singkat mengenai struktur tersebut.

Mecca Clock Tower,

is a building complex in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It reaches up a height of 601 meters (1,972 feet) and 120 floors. Upon its official opening the structure would surpass Dubai International Airport having the largest floor area of any structure in the world with 1,500,000 m2. # i do imagine how great if I have house as largest as that.

The complex holds several world records, including:

  • The tallest hotel in the world.
  • The tallest clock tower in the world.
  • The world’s largest clock face.
  • The world’s largest building floor area.

Menara Jam Mekah, adalah sebuah gedung di Mekah, Arab Saudi. Tingginya sekitar 601 m ( 1972 kaki ) dan 120 lantai. Sejak pembukaan resminya, gedung ini melampaui Bandara Internasional Dubai dalam hal luas daerah lantai dari gedung manapun di dunia dengan luas 1.500.000 m2.

Gedung ini juga mendapatkan beberapa record dunia, termasuk:

  • Hotel tertinggi di dunia
  • Menara jam tertinggi di dunia
  • Fasad jam terbesar di dunia
  • Area lantai terbesar di dunia

I can say it, that the text above is a justification for my previous post. It will concluded that  the first tallest building still placed by Burj Kalifa in Dubai, the second is Mecca Clock Tower, the third place by Taipei 101, and Shanghai World Financial Center occupy the fourth place.

Bisa dikatakan, text di atas adalah pembenari dari postingan saya sebelumnya. Juga disimpulkan bahwa gedung tertinggi di dunia masih ditempati oleh Burj Khalifa di Dubai, kedua adalah Menara Jam Mekah, tempat ketiga oleh Taipei 101, dan Pusat Keuangan Dunia Sanghai menempati posisi ke empat.

So, please check it out the 5th and 6th tallest building in the world:
