Presint 9

Malaysia began its search for a new Government administrative centre in the 1980s to disperse some development away from Kuala Lumpur. A site at Prang Besar in the district Sepang was chosen, in view of its strategic location between Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). The New Federal Government Administrative Centre is named as “Putrajaya” in honour of Malaysia first Prime Minister, YTM Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra al-Haj, for his invaluable contributions to the nation.

While Kuala Lumpur will remain as the country’s capital city as well as premiere financial and commercial centre, Putrajaya will play the role of the new Federal Government Administrative Center.

Construction of the new city began in August 1995. When the city is fully developed, it will have a total of 64,000 housing units which will cater a population of around 320,000 people.


Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,931 hectares of land is strategically located within the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), approximately 25km south of Kuala Lumpur and 20km north of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Being served by a network of highways and Express Rail Link (ERL) from KL Sentral Station to KLIA via the Putrajaya Central located in Precint 7.

The Garden City

Putrajaya is being developed based on the theme of City in A Garden. Of the city’s total land area, about 38% is being developed into parks, lakes and wetlands while remaining is reserved for government offices, commercial and residential areas, as well as public utilities and amenities. The centrepiece of the city is the 600 hectare man-made Putrajaya Lake as its principal landscape feature and serves as a climate moderator. Currently, the lake offers activities such as boating, canoing, kayaking and fishing.

The Intelligent City

Being located within the Multimedia Super Corridor, and in line with the Government’s e-Government initiative, Putrajaya is also developed as an intelligent city. Multimedia technologies will be in place to facilitate communication and interaction between Government offices, between the Government and the business community, as well as between the Government and local population and general public.
