    A man made city

    by BeeTea Written Jul 7, 2006
    artificial lake

    We had only 4 hours transit in KL airport before our next flight, we're lucky when a sister of my friend picked us up at the airport and took us around to Putrajaya.
    It took no more than 30 minutes via highway to get there.

    It was so stunning, really a masterpiece of planding and developing a city. Row of buildings, artificial lake and bridges makes a picturesque view.
    All is so manage, clean, quiet, no traffic at all even on mid day, I feel it's too perfect, so I think this city needs a litle 'human touch'.
    (this reminds me of some Hollywood movies about 'a too perfect city' and the people turned out to be robot :-)).
    We had lunch and get back to airport.

    Putrajaya Mosque

    Putrajaya is half an hour's drive away from Kuala Lumpur.

    Should be worth a visit - it's ultra modern city -- the new administrative centre of Malaysia. Many people can't seem to leave Kuala Lumpur for this new place though, and so K Lumpur is still the place to be !

    Putrajaya Boulevard

    If Paris has its Champs Elysee, and Buenos Aires has its 9 de Julio Avenue, and Washington has its Washington Mall, Putrajaya has its Putrajaya Boulevard. The boulevard is 4.2km long and this is where we celebrate our National Day parade and other festive activities.

    The Prime Minister Office in Putrajaya

    Night time is when you can actually see the great view of Putrajaya where its litted with lights and also some amazing breath taking sight. But bare in mind go with friends who actually do have transportation and get lost there... no problem at all..
    Make sure you go around the bridges in Putrajaya at night. It's amazing architecture is to die for and will left ya wondering how on earth they joined it together. Also check out the bulding like the Palace of Justice and also few others.
    Oh yeah for those of you who just love snapping photos... its heaven on earth
    Have fun!

    p.s: be there before 12 midnight cause if you go after that, too bad u cant go in anymore and hafta wait till the next day.

    Politics and Religion

    by kphstar Written Jan 19, 2005

    Here is the Mosque that stand tall in from of Parliment house. Pretty much like how religion is preceived in Malaysia - Islam comes first.

    Anyway, compared to most of the other is KL, this is massive. Only yhe Mosque in Shah Alam can rival it's size and beauty.

    Build it and they will come.......

    by kphstar Written Jan 19, 2005

    And built it they have. This whole township built by the Malaysian Government for the Malaysian Government and their employees and family is an outstanding example of town planning. I've had the chance to see it evove over the past several years to how it is today. but the thing is that they are still building and improving.

    It's great just to take that 50 minute drive or a 20 minute train ride out of KL to see this place. It's simply an attraction for it beautiful blend of old and new style architecture.

    Pretty in Pink

    by teemsum Written Nov 26, 2004

    The Putraraja Mosque is 25 km from KL.
    Women have to wear a robe & headcovering (that is provided).
    You are allowed to take pictures inside.
    After you exit the mosque, go outside & down the stairs to the shopping centre. There is a food court & name brand shops down there.

    Putrajaya district

    The main mosque at putrajaya

    This is probably the nicest district/zone i've ever seen in the whole of malaysia all my life.The roads are well paved, the streets are totally clean, the lamp posts are all working and everything is beautiful here.

    The sight of the beautiful and majestic mosque as well as the govt buildings make the place a trip worth going. It is most important to go there during daytime and esp when it's hot and sunny so as to admire the full scenic view of the place with its magnificent buildings surrounding the area
