A Couple of Hours in Putrajaya
Despite having visited the federal administrative centre of Malaysia for many times, I never stop feeling amaze with the architecture and beauty of buildings and landscapes in Putrajaya.
Last week I spent a few hours in Putrajaya giving a short tour of the planned city to my kakak-kakak and abang from Indonesia who has been part of my family for the last couple of years. They never been to Putrajaya and after few times of rescheduling, I finally fulfilled my promise to bring them around.
We started at the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque or better known as Masjid Besi or Steel Mosque.
Interesting facts: built from 6, 000 tones of steel. Environmental friendly design, and does not require fans or air-conditioners. Cost – RM 200 million.
Very nice design.
Very calming feeling
Not many mosques have this view!
Putrajaya is a beautiful place for walking and street photo shooting, unfortunately the weather was too hot on that day and I decided to do street shooting on some other days, hence the shoot-while-driving tour action.
Perdana Putra, PM’s office.
The Putra Mosque, or Masjid Putra, the principal mosque of Putrajaya, Malaysia. One of Putrajaya’s biggest tourist magnet.
Dataran Putra – currently under renovation.
