Putrajaya ~ Places to Visit from Kuala
Termed as Malaysia's
first Intelligent Garden City, Putrajaya is the new Administrative Centre of
the Federal Government of Malaysia.
Located 36 km or about 45 minutes drive south of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya is situated within the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), beside the also newly developed Cyberjaya. Moving the national administrative machinery from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya and leaving Kuala Lumpur as the country's financial and commercial capital, it was developed in line with the Government's policy to provide a more balanced development and to ensure continued growth in the Klang Valley.
Named after Malaysias first Prime Minister, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, it is a brain-child project of former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir, as a planned futuristic model city with lush greenery built with emphasis on design and architectural significance.
Putrajaya is divided into various precincts which are identified by their predominant economic activities with the Government Precinct being spatially prominent.
The Core Area which is divided into five precincts, establishes the overall identity of Putrajaya. At the North of the Core Area is where the Federal Government precinct is located with most of its ministries, departments and agencies.
Forming the spine of Putrajaya is a 4.2km boulevard that runs right through the middle linking the Core Area precincts.
