Most Beautiful Structures in Putrajaya

Located 25 km south of Kuala Lumpur, this new planned city now serves as the federal administrative center of Malaysia. Due to overcrowding in Kuala Lumpur, the seat of government was shifted here in the late 20th century by the administration of former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Muhammad's plan. Although Putrajaya is now Malaysia's third Federal Territory, Kuala Lumpur still remains the country's commercial and financial centre apart from the seat of the King and Parliament. The city's name is derived from the Sanskrit words "putra" which means "prince" after Malaysia's first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, and "jaya" which is "success". Since it is a planned city and the new administrative centre, a lot of planning has gone into ensuring it reflects Malaysia's status as one of the most developed nation in the third world. Here is a list of some of the most beautiful structures you can find in Putrajaya.
