Putrajaya is Malaysia’s third and newest Federal Territory. Built on an extensive quagmire and previous oil palm estate in Selangor, the city covers an area of approximately 5,000 hectares and lies 25 km from Kuala Lumpur. Putrajaya takes over the administrative tasks of the capital city Kuala Lumpur and is a component of the Multimedia Super Corridor project of the Malaysian government. It is also a haven of multiple attractions in Kuala Lumpur.
Much organization and planning have gone into the improvement of Putrajaya as a modern city with up-to-the-minute communication technologies and progressive infrastructure. The streets are sophisticatedly designed with a European feel, alongside well-paved roads while the government buildings are a mixture of contemporary architecture with Islamic arts. Commercial, authoritative and residential regions have been separated into precincts that mingle into each other cohesively. A waterway cuts throughout the city, flowing into a large lake. The concrete landscape is balanced with heaps of parks, foliage and wetlands but because the land is comparatively flat, it does not look blossoming.
There are more than a few places that visitors can travel around. Those coming from KLIA airport will merely take minutes to reach Putrajaya attractions in Kuala Lumpur. On the other hand, there are a lot of bus and railway services to transport you to Putrajaya from Kuala Lumpur.
The Botanical Garden in the northern zone of Precinct 1 is a safe haven for Malaysian plants over and above a research and education centre.
The Putra Mosque is a striking structure depicting the progression of Muslim mosque architecture. It is modeled with Persian rudiments and design.
The Dataran Putra or Putra Square is a centre for holding national occassions and formal parades. It is a circular structure that is 300 meters-wide, bounded by water beds, flora and trees.
The Perdana Putra is a 6-level structure of stone which encompasses the Prime Minister’s office. Imposing and majestic, the building symbolizes the strong foundation essential to run a country efficiently. It is one of the famous attractions in Kuala Lumpur.
