Liberation Tower

The Liberation Tower is a 372-meter-high or 1,220 feet tall telecommunications tower in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

History of Liberation Tower

The Liberation Tower stands as the second-tallest structure in Kuwait and ranks as the 39th tallest building globally. While not accessible to tourists, the tower complex is home to various government offices, including the Communication and Information Technology Regulatory Authority and a government service center. This center facilitates civil services related to several ministries and authorities, including the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Public Authority For Civil Information, Ministry of Justice, Public Institution for Social Security, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Fire Service Directorate, and Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour.

Initially designated as The Kuwait Telecommunications Tower, construction of the tower began before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. The invasion interrupted construction, which was nearly halfway completed at the time. Fortunately, the structure remained undamaged during the conflict, and construction resumed following the expulsion of Iraqi forces on February 27, 1991. Upon its completion in 1993, the tower was renamed the Liberation Tower, symbolizing Kuwait’s triumph and liberation from Iraq.
