The Imagined City: Putrajaya

Since I've been to KL before and have seen the Petronas Towers, I decided to head to the administrative capital of Malaysia, Putrajaya.

Putrajaya was a short train ride away from Kuala Lumpur. The ticket cost me around 9.50 MYR if I'm not mistaken.

The Imagined City

Putrajaya was planned and then later constructed back in 1999 to decongest the clogging urban areas in Kuala Lumpur. The seat of the government was transferred to this imagined city. I'm no expert in architecture but I do like looking at buildings and designs. Putrajaya has a lot of impressive buildings and I just love the way the whole city was planned.

I ran into a Filipino and Aussie on the bus to one of the buildings, I ended up traveling with them. Another impressive work of architecture on this city was the Putra Mosque. The mosque was already closed when we arrived so we ended up just looking at it from the outside.

I liked the design of the buildings and the way they were laid out on this city. The curves and Islamic influence gave this city character. 

Our motley crew walked to the Seri Wawasan Bridge and from there we decided to walk all the way to another mosque at the opposite side of Putra Mosque.

We ended up watching the sunset by the mosque. It was quite a long walk to this mosque, but thankfully I had company which made time pass faster.
