Snapshot Sunday: Putrajaya, Malaysia

I was in Putrajaya few days ago in conjunction with Girl Guides Malaysia National Annual General Meeting & Conference which held annually and the host for this year is none other than Putrajaya itself. Previously, I lived in Kuala Lumpur for almost 5 years but I never have the chance to visit this federal administrative centre of Malaysia, not until recently. And with this, I unofficially complete visited the whole 13 states and 3 federal territories of Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and Putrajaya). 

The host was so kind that they even offered us few sightseeing tours around Putrajaya, including night cruise along the magnificent and magical Putrajaya Lake (Tasik Putrajaya) and here are few snapshots I took during the sightseeing:

Putrajaya - Perdana Putra
#1: Perdana Putra which houses the office complex of the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Putrajaya - Putra Mosque
#2: This pink-domed Putra Mosque is the principal mosque of this federal administrative capital.

The bridge on the left is Seri Gemilang Bridge and the fun fact of this bridge was it was built beforehand the man-made lake of Putrajaya.

#4: Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque which also commonly known as "Iron Mosque" is the second principal mosque in Putrajaya.

Putrajaya - Seri Saujana Bridge
#5: Seri Saujana Bridge, a main bridge in Putrajaya. The design of bridge is unique cable-stayed arch bridge and it is resembles to the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia.

Putrajaya - Seri Wawasan Bridge
#6: Categorized as a 'signature bridge', Seri Wawasan Bridge is another main bridge of Putrajaya.

In the case where you didn't own any car to travel around just like me, there are few options available for you for a short tour around Putrajaya:
