Putrajaya KL


Sight-Seeing....3rd June,2009








Putrajaya  is a planned city, located south of Kuala Lumpur, that serves as the federal administrative centre of Malaysia.. Putrajaya was the brainchild of former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad( one of my mentor...love him;) who was in power then. In 2001, Putrajaya was made a Federal Territory, increasing the number of federal territories to three, Kuala Lumpur and Labuan 
Named after the first Malaysian Prime MinisterTunku Abdul Rahman Putra and the "jaya", part of the city's name means "victory" in Sanskrit.The development started in 1995 and today major landmarks are completed and the population is expected to grow in the relatively new city.
