Things to see in Putrajaya

Putrajaya is one of the youngest cities in Malaysia as development only began in 1995. Nowadays Putrajaya houses the seat of the government in the building Perdana Putra. This city lies just a few kilometers outside of Kuala Lumpur

The city is very modern as the majority of buildings have only been built in recent years and is heavily influenced by modern Islamic architecture. A nice feature of Putrajaya is that the city is green and spacious. The main boulevard that runs through the city is the place where everything worth seeing is located. On one end is the seat of the government called Perdana Putra located which looks out over the whole avenue. It is surrounded by a nice park. Close to this is the Putra mosque which is positioned at the waterfront making it one of the main landmarks of Putrajaya. Both are situated near a large square. Walking further down the boulevard you will come across several other noticeable buildings. One of the most impressive is the palace of justice which has a large dome on top of it. Across the street is the Perbanan government complex located which has an unique design. Other buildings includes the ministry of finance and several remarkable office blocks. Nearby is the Seri Wawasan bridge located that provides nice views over the river and allows a beautiful view of Putra mosque from the back. It is the combination of all of these modern buildings together that create an impressive place which is worth seeing. 

Despite its attractive architecture, the city is not visited by large crowds of tourists. Most people come here to work and there are no lively streets such as those in nearby Kuala Lumpur. The downside of this is that there are not many place to get a drink or something to eat. Still, as an easy day trip out of KL, Putrajaya is well worth it if you are into modern Islamic architecture. 

Getting to Putrajaya is straightforward from Kuala Lumpur as it is connected by a direct train. This is the same one that goes to the airport. From the train station it takes roughly half an hour to walk to the main boulevard on which all the interesting buildings are located. There are taxi's and buses available to save you some time and energy. There are two rainy season in Putrajaya which are October-November and March-April. It is still possible to visit the city during these months, but because everything is located around one boulevard with few places to take shelter during heavy downpours, it is worth taking a look at the weather forecast before setting off.
