    Putrajaya International Convention Center

    by pres_16 Updated Mar 2, 2007

    At a first glance of this structure, to me it looks more like a UFO. But I found out later that this structure was inpired from the traditional pending perak or the silver royal belt buckle and wau bulan or moon kite. Such a very distinctive landmark in Putrajaya. Nestled on top of a hill, it provides visitors a panoramic view of the city.

    Signature Bridges: The Works of Art

    by pres_16 Updated Mar 2, 2007

    I was able to catch the view of this beautiful bridge while I was at the PICC. Sad thing is that I forgot to ask the name of this bridge.

    I think I need to be an engineer first to be able to describe those signature bridges. So for this and the rest of the bridges, I would just let the picture speak for itself.

    Taman Putra Perdana

    by pres_16 Updated Mar 2, 2007

    I came here after visiting Istana Melawati Palace. Greeting and welcoming the visitors are the fountains and plants with flowers. It’s a quiet place and not so touristy.

    At the far end of the park, you would notice unique metal structure sculpture called the Putrajaya Landmark or Mercu Tanda.

    This is the second national palace after Istana Negara in KL. Perched quietly on a top of a hill, it was really a pleasure riding up here as you pass through the well-maintained landscaped roads. Everyone who comes here would surely enjoy the sorroundings.

    This is a huge office building of the justice department that looks like a mosque with its big dome at the center flanked by two smaller domes. Fronting the building are the green trees and a wide green field across the road.

    Park

    by imstress Written Sep 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This beautiful park is situated just beside the Prime Minsiter Office. Follow the signboard which leads you to the cruise and Masjid Putra and you will be able to see this park.

    The park is vey well kept and the gardening and landscaping are quite well maintained.

    There is a well maintained fountain at the top of the park. If you take the steps, you could have a good view of the Istana on the hill top.

    From the fountain, you could have a good view of the Masjid Mosque from high ground and the bridge.
