Sunway Pyramid is a distinctive retail landmark located in the heart of Petaling Jaya. It was opened in July 1997 as Malaysia's first themed shopping and entertainment mall. One of the mall's most easily recognised designs is the Egyptian-inspired Pyramid with a lion "standing guard" at the entrance. Sunway Pyramid is also one of the only shopping malls in Malaysia to have an indoor ice skating rink. The new wing of Sunway Pyramid, called the Pyramid 2 (or P-2), was opened in 2007. It is open to newer retailers such as Jusco, Giant, Harvey Norman and so on. Expansion of the parking area to nearly 8 floors makes this place popular with tourists, local and foreign alike. It also plays host to many exclusive boutiques.
