Mankind always dreams to build something megalithic if we follow the history of this planet. Starting from the Great Pyramid of Giza built by the pharaohs,to the Lighthouse of Alexandria,which was built by the Ptolemaic Kingdom,ancient architectures throughout the world are found to support the evidence of the efforts to construct something challenging. In the modern world where science and technology dominate everything,a culture of constructing humongous architecture again boomed during the late 90s. It is not only the race to build megastructures,but also a fascinating journey to the greenest buildings mankind has ever seen. UAE,China,India,Malaysia and many different countries of Asia are all in this race. So,here is the list of Top 10 Tallest Buildings in Asia.
