Top 10 Things to do in Putrajaya, Malaysia

February 13, 2018 Osvaldo Hartline

Putrajaya, officially the Federal Territory of Putrajaya, is a planned city and the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya because of overcrowding and congestion in the former. Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia's national capital and is the seat of the King, the Parliament, and all the foreign embassies, and the country's commercial and financial centre. Putrajaya was the idea of former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. It became Malaysia's third Federal Territory, after Kuala Lumpur and Labuan, in 2001.

Masjid Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin (Masjid Besi)

Reviewed By Paleflier - Liphook, United Kingdom

Visited here with friends. What a fabulous peaceful and tranquil place. If you plan to visit, please be respectful. Men will not be allowed in if wearing shorts - you will be offered a sarong to wear over the top. Ladies will be allowed in if wearing a head covering. If not, a robe, complete with hood will be offered. It is expected that footwear will be removed. Once inside, you will experience the tranquility of the place. It’s beautiful architecture will captivate you. It is all steel construction, but it is based on mediaeval designs, and the sweeping arches are reminiscent of cathedrals in the U.K. the design is clever. The Mosque is surrounded by water, and as the air inside heats up, it passes into the dome, and draws air in through the open sides, over the water, where it is cooled, and then into the building. Despite the heat outside, it was a pleasant temperature inside. This place is truly worth a visit if you have time.

Reviewed By PinkPamplemousse - Belfort, France

Definitely worth a visit for young families. Animals all looked happy and healthy, the staff provide lots of opportunities to feed animals with fresh leaves or you can buy hay to feed them too. You can get up close and touch the animals which our two year old loved. Different experience to a zoo, smaller animals but more interactive. Also good variety of animals. Lots of staff and very helpful/friendly. Recommend getting there at opening time as small carpark fills up quickly plus it gets too hot. Mosquito repellant also recommended. VERY stroller friendly, impressed with access, lots of ramps.

Putra Mosque

Reviewed By shettyuc - Mumbai, India

We arrived at the mosque around 1.30 PM when it was closed for prayers. We waited until 2.0 pm for the gates to be opened to general public. As we were nonmuslim my wife was required to put on an additional dress before entering the mosque.
We were impressed with this beautiful mosque on the banks of the river Putra.

Palm Garden Golf Club

Reviewed By Ralf M - Shanghai, China

Fairways are broad, greens fast and consistent (mostly). My caddy was very good, and I had a pleasant round of golf here and enjoyed the club restaurant afterwords.
Really recommendable course.
Price is a bit higher than others, but the maintained quality of the course is worth to pay the fees.

Putrajaya Lake

Reviewed By sksaraff - Mumbai

This Lake is quiet pretty and one can take a ride of this lake through cruise available however at Malaysia they charge hefty money from tourist and are not even ashamed of doing the same. As per them, Malaysian government have started charging hefty money from tourist and asked their citizens too to do the same where the cost have increased almost by 5 times since September 2017. So if any body plans for the trip to Malaysia and have travelled earlier, please keep the money extra accordingly because you need to pay for every small things as a tourist. But yes don't miss to visit this lake and all the Bridges constructed around this lake.

Putrajaya Bridge

Reviewed By cherriesfan_9 - Cheltenham, United Kingdom

This is one of a series of 7 Bridges that span Lake Putrajaya. Although each of these Bridges is architecturally styled differently, the Putrajaya Bridge closely reflects that of the dominating Putra mosque - in which traditional Arabic designs are incorporated. Under the carriageway are a number of shops, and the moorings for the Cruise Tasik Putrajaya.

Seri Perdana

The prime minister's official home.

Reviewed By cherriesfan_9 - Cheltenham, United Kingdom

Impressive and imposing building that is the Prime Ministers office - so naturally for security reasons the public are not allowed in.
This is solid western office architecture meeting the iconic dome and traditions of the East - a good metaphor for Malaysia.
Good views from the many public pathways around this building - it is in a lovely setting
