Attractions in Putrajaya- A look at ‘The Pride of the Nation’

Whether what you are after some wetland handicraft products that Putrajaya is quite famous for, or whether you would like to get your sweat on at one of their notorious indoor theme parks, let this article be a guide to educate you of attractions to visit when in Putrajaya.

District 21 Putrajaya

This is an adventure theme park sitting proudly within the IOI City Mall Putrajaya which is wonderland to kiddies and adults alike with its monstrous collection of fun activities. Spanning over a staggering 6500 square meters this theme park features a post-apocalyptic backdrop with ample metal beams, steel walls and intensely colourful graffiti adorning the walls, somehow made to look even cooler with suspended ropes, chains and the likes at various points. With a treasure of LED-lit climbing walls, break-neck speed sides, trampolines and aerial obstacle courses, District 21 is complete with a number of kid-friendly rides as well like a carousel. Low ropes, and even the much-adored pedal-go-kart.

Iron Mosque Putrajaya

This relatively new landmark has definitely earned its spot as a favourite among visitors in Putrajaya. A project begun in the year 2004 having reached fruition in 2009, this unique piece of work borrows heavily from German and Chinese architectural design and is mostly constituent of steel, making its name a well- appropriate one. It is located near the spectacular Poudre Lake and is rich with exceptional panoramic views of the lake as well as other parts of Putrajaya. Accessibility to this location is a no-brainer considering the extreme collection of hotels in Putrajaya, to suit all budgets and requirements.

Putra Mosque

This has got to be the most distinctive landmark in all of Putrajaya as well as one of the most modern mosques in the world. Its Islamic architecture portrays cleverly their traditional design, local talent and the ample availability and use of indigenous materials. It is built with rose-tinted granite giving it a brilliant desert-pink hue that pairs exceptionally well with the cengal woodwork on doors, windows and panels even. Like most key attractions of Putrajaya, this too is located conveniently close to famous properties such as Dorsett Putrajaya- only 6 minutes’ drive away!

Putrajaya Putra Complex

Located in precinct 1 overlooking the Putrajaya lake, Putra Mosque and Dataran Putra. This splendid six-storey natural stone-clad corporate complex hosts the Prime Minister’s Office, the offices of the Deputy Prime Minister and the Chief Secretary to the Government. The building’s architecture is a story itself; with its strong perimeter base representing the robust and steady foundation necessary to administer efficient governance for prosperity whereas its series of columns rising up across the four remaining floors signify the orderly and united population that stands by the dominion of Malaysia.

Dataran Putra and Sri Perdana Complex

This ceremonial tree-lined showstopper is approximately 300 meters in diameter and is complete with local themes, water and light topographies. Its decadent design itself speaks a story- with an outermost 11-point star to commemorate the 11 states at independence, an inner 13-point star symbolizing the 13 Malaysian states that are today and the inner-most 14-point star representing the Malaysian states and its Federal Territories. Sri Perdana, on the other hand, is the official residence of the present and future Malaysian prime ministers and is open for viewings on certain designated days alone.
