Putrajaya and it’s lovely structures

Finally…sharing the long overdue continuation of my October Malaysia trip 🙂

❤❤❤

The next morning after our first day in Malaysia  we headed straight to Putrajaya.  The very first time I set foot in Malaysia, I noticed the impressive architectural and  urban planning and transportation.  So visiting Putrajaya made me admire the country more.

Putrajaya is a planned city, which is located 25 km south of Kuala Lumpur, that serves as the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. All the government offices is located here.  Nice urban planning, very impressive.

To get there,  take the Express Rail Link train from KL’s Sentral to Putrajaya Sentral. We hire a taxi for  RM40 that will tour us around the place for 1 hour. The taxi driver spoke good English. He served as our tour guide and photographer too

Putra Mosque (Pink Mosque) oh…I hate that bus

The Pink Mosque or the Putra Mosque was named in honor to Malaysia’s first Prime Minister Tunkun Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj. It is also recognized as one of notable landmarks in Putrajaya, a must visit for tourist. It’s located in the Precinct 1 just in front of Putrajaya Lake and beside the Dataran Putra ( Putra Square).

Perdana Putra is the Prime Minister’s Department Complex. Strategically located at the new Federal Government Administrative Centre, Putrajaya is within radius of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) and about 40km from the Federal Capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Palace of Justice

The Palace of Justice is influenced by the Islamic culture that built the walls of the Taj Mahal in India, the Moorish culture like the Sultan Abdul Samad Building in Kuala Lumpur, and the Western culture of the Palladian.

A short trip to Putrajaya  made me admire how clean the city landscape is as we drive along from one road to another. It made me remember home and the possibility that one day…Manila could be as progressive as this country.

After our Putrajaya visit, he headed straight to Sepang Selangor to watch motogp….up next. Please be back 🙂
