Putra Bridge

Deemed to be the most important of the bridges in Putrajaya, the 435-m concrete bridge connects the Government Precinct to the Mixed Development Precinct, with the upper level of the bridge forming part of the Boulevard, the main street in the capital. The three-tier bridge is inspired by the Islamic architecture of the famous Khaju Bridge in Isfahan, Iran. Its magnificent attractions are the four minaret-type piers, complete with observation decks, overlooking the Putrajaya Lake. This unique bridge provides access to pedestrians, vehicles and a monorail, while its pier will be developed into a fine dining area with a place for boats to berth.

Perdana Putra

Putra Perdana is the Prime Minister’s Department Complex housing several government buildings and agencies. It is located on the main hill in Putrajaya, and was built in 1997. The buildings in the complex are influenced by Malay, Islamic and European architecture, hence its unique look. This building has also become the icon for Putrajaya, with its distinctive green dome and clay like coloured buildings. Besides the government complexes, are also the Putra Mosque, the Dataran Putra, and Perdana Walk.

Palace of Justice

The Istana Kehakiman or Palace of Justice is a majestic looking building, and houses the judicial department and courts. The complex comprises five-storey building for the judiciary and a two-storey building to house the courts and offices. Since the area has a large courtyard, it is often used as a venue for national level events such as Colours of Malaysia fest, and many more. A great place for outdoor photography, with the impressive domed minarets as a focal viewpoint.

Putrajaya Cruise

Putrajaya lake is in the heart of the administration city, and visitors can take a leisure cruise on the lake. One can view stunning vistas of the surrounding area from the cruise, including the Putrajaya Mosque, Putrajaya Bridge as well as several government administrative buildings.

The air-conditioned cruise boat also seats 76 persons comfortably, and one can see the landmarks of Putrajaya via its wrap-around glass windows.
