Malaysia Trip: Putrajaya (Day 5 Part 1)

Putra Mosque

On our fifth day in Kuala Lumpur, we went to Putrajaya. It’s a planned city 20-30 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur. The Malaysian government transferred their main administrative offices including the Prime Ministry office and many of their ministries from the Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya to ease on the traffic and congestion. It’s a work in progress city. From what I hear, they have many plans for this city. I was actually surprised at how clean and beautiful the city looked. Now this is a place to work in NOT in our ministries in deira that can give employees and the visitors depression.The landscapes were beautiful. I visited the Putra Mosque which is a beautiful pink Mosque. I took a quick tour inside the mosque and then we had our tour bus take us around the streets to look at their ministry buildings, etc. Everything was beautiful, clean and organized. Even though it was a work-day, the streets were quiet. You don’t see visitors parking their cars illegally around any of the ministries. Unlike here, visitors and employees actually respect the laws. They park in their designated areas.

At the end of this road, you will see the office of Malaysian Prime Minister


The cool thing about the streets in Putrajaya is that in each street, the streetlights look different. The design of their streetlights were inspired by Malaysian culture so you see streetlights looking like Cobra, kites, etc. It was fun looking at them. Each street was unique in its own way.
