The Telekom Tower (Malay: Menara Telekom) or Menara TM is a skyscraper in Lembah Pantai, southwestern Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It is 310 m (1,017 feet ) tall, has 55 flooring, and is shaped to represent a sprouting'bamboo shoot'. It is located along the Federal Highway, Sprint Expressway and Jalan Pantai Baharu and is served by the Rapid KL Kerinchi LRT station. It was designed by Hijjas Kasturi Associates and has been constructed between 1998 and 2001 by Deawoo Construction. The building was formally opened on 11 February 2003 from the fourth Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. It resembles the Bitexco Financial Tower of Ho Chi Minh City (finished in 2010) and the Telecommunications Tower (finished in 2002) in Montevideo.

With a string of hanging gardens scaling it, the structure cost over $160 million. The tower has been designed to profit from its surrounding environment, with its windows, orientation, and air condition system to encourage energy saving.The complex also includes a theater able to seat a 2,500 audience, a huge prayer hall (surau) and a sports facility. A unique feature of the tower is its 22 open skygardens alternating every three floors. The office floors are split into north and south wings served by express double-deck elevators. Near the construction is Kerinchi Pylon, the tallest electricity pylon in Southeast Asia.
