This resplendent building houses the offices of Malaysia?s Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister as well as the Ministers in the Prime Minister?s Department.
Putrajaya, covering an area of 4,931 hectares of land, is situated 25 kilometers from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur in the north and 20 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang in the south. As Malaysia?s administrative capital, Putrajaya has positioned itself as a tourist destination with its captivating architecture and picturesque landscapes.
The design of the building is mostly inspired by a combination of European, Malay and Islamic architecture, so this is also a great place for pictorials. The clay-like coloured buildings and the green dome are among the unique features of the Perdana Putra. Rising 50m in height, the building features striking design elements such as a green-pitched roof, onion-shaped dome and wrought iron motifs of the bunga raya or hibiscus, which is Malaysia?s national flower. Visitors are free to view the building from the outside.
A visit to the administrative city is not complete without taking a tour of the Perdana Putra complex. Constructed in 1997, the complex was built on the main hill of Putrajaya. Some of the government agencies and buildings are housed in the complex.
