Welcome to Putrajaya

As a showcase of urban planning and vaulting architectural ambition, Putrajaya is impressive, but it’s still a long way off its envisioned population of over 300,000 and a strange place to visit. At its heart is a 6-sq-km artificial lake fringed by landscaped parks and an eclectic mix of buildings and bridges, best viewed when illuminated at night.
