PUTRAJAYA OVERVIEW (SYMPOSIUM VENUE)

Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,931 hectares of land strategically located within the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), approximately 25km south of Kuala Lumpur and 20km north of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Putrajaya is accessible via a network of highways and the Express Rail Link (ERL Transit) from Kuala Lumpur Sentral to KLIA via Putrajaya Sentral in Precinct 7.Putrajaya is being developed as a City in a Garden. About 38% of its area is being developed into parks, lakes and wetlands while the rest is reserved for government offices, commercial and residential development, public utilities and amenities. The 600 hectare man-made Putrajaya Lake serves as a climate moderator. Currently, lake activities available are boating, canoeing, kayaking and fishing.

Being located within the Multimedia Super Corridor, and in line with the Government’s e-Government initiative, Putrajaya is being developed as an intelligent city. Multimedia technologies are being implemented to facilitate communications and interactions between Government offices, between the Government and the business community, and between the Government and the community. 

 

PUTRA MOSQUE

The pink-domed Putra Mosque is constructed with rose-tinted granite and can accommodate 15,000 worshippers at any one time. The basement wall of the mosque resembles that of the King Hassan Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco. The mosque consists of three main functional areas - the prayer hall, the Sahn, or courtyard, and various learning facilities and function rooms. The prayer hall is simple and elegant, supported by 12 columns. The highest point below the dome is 250 feet above ground level. The Sahn, landscaped with several decorative water features and bordered by colonnades, provides a huge yet welcoming and beautiful prayer space. Its impressive minaret is influenced by the design of the Sheikh Omar Mosque in Baghdad. At 116m, it is one of the tallest minarets in the region and has five tiers, representing the Five Pillars of Islam.

 

Tropical Botanical Garden Putrajaya

Tropical Botanical Garden is a good place to go during the morning or evening for a time of recreation. The tropics near the equator that stretches from Asia Pacific to Africa and South America received plenty of sunshine and rain throughout the year. As such, the diversity of the flora and fauna in these regions still remains to be explored.

 

Agriculture Heritage Park

Visitors can sample fresh fruits and observe activities such as rubber tapping, latex collection, crop maintenance, fruits preservation and many others. Among the attractions here include the visitors' complex, an orchard, a herbs and spices track, clonal rubber plot and viewing deck. The park also offers many agro-products for sale, while various agro-based activities and programmes are arranged for visitors all-year round.

  

The China-Malaysia Friendship Garden

To celebrate the good bilateral relations between Malaysia and China, the China-Malaysia Friendship Garden was built recently in Putrajaya, Malaysia’s administrative city centre.
