    MUSLIMS working and living in Putrajaya can now perform their prayers at another awe-inspiring landmark, the newly-opened Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque in Precinct 3.

    Named after the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, the mosque is expected to be officially opened in September.

    In a symbolic but low-key ceremony on Thursday, the mosque was handed over by Perbadanan Putrajaya (PPj), represented by its president, Tan Sri Samsudin Osman, to Islamic Religious Development Department of Malaysia (Jakim) director-general Datuk Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abd Aziz.

    Pedestrian access: A view of the Kiblat Walk heading towards
    Perbadanan Putrajaya and the Palace of Justice from the mosque.

    The ceremony was held at the mosque’s multi-purpose hall.Samsudin said the RM208mil mosque catered to 20,000 worshippers and was completed on time.

    “We were often asked why build another mosque when the Putra Mosque in Precinct 1 is deemed big enough. We estimate the future working population on the Core Island to number 28,000 so the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque will cater for this,” he said at a press conference.

    Impressive entrance: Internal Iwan is the gateway to
    the main prayer hall within the mosque.

    According to Wan Mohamad, 565,408 tourists visited the Putra Mosque last year.

    “Besides catering to worshippers, the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque will also draw tourists. Therefore, I urge the mosque management not to run things military-style by restricting access to Muslims alone.

    “This amazing mosque has many features. Yes, there are places where non-Muslims are not allowed but at the same time, we can be more welcoming so as to tell others about the religion and answer any queries they may have,” he added.

    Impressive:This is office building area nearly to the mosque

    The entire structure built on 4.04ha comprises the mosque (3.32ha) and the soon-to-be opened Kiblat Walk (0.72ha). Funds from the Eighth Malaysia Plan (RM8) were used for the overall construction, undertaken by KLCC Projeks Bhd.

    The main prayer hall houses the Mihrab Wall that directs worshippers towards the “kiblat” (the direction of Mecca). The Mihrab Wall is inscribed with Quranic verses in the Nasakh calligraphic-style.

    The khat is inscribed onto the back of the anti-reflective glass, giving a sense of verses floating down from the sky. The Sahn is the overflow prayer area outside the main prayer hall and the entrance to this is via a gateway called the Internal Iwan. It features stainless steel grilles, based on Islamic motifs and mirrors traditional Islamic architecture in a contemporary manner.

    Public transportation within Putrajaya is woefully inadequate, as distances are long and you need wheels to get around. Occasional Nadiputra buses putter about from the train station at random times in random directions, but your best bet is probably to enquire at KLIA or KL Sentral about organized tours. There are also public two-hour tours at 11 AM and 2 PM, departing from the tour desk at Selera Putra, that charge only a token RM 1 for the bus.

    Nadi Putra bus

    By taxi

    Coupon taxis from the Transit station charge RM8-10 to most points in Putrajaya. Other taxis are limited and it's best to book by phone at +60-3-5512-2266. Other taxi hotlines include: Putrajaya Cyberjaya Radio Taxi at +60 03 8888 4000, which operates 24hours. The meter starts ticking from RM4, but many cabbies are reluctant to use theirs. Chartering starts from RM30/hour, negotiable downwards.

    By monorail

    Construction of the Putrajaya Monorail has been halted until the occupancy of the Core District becomes higher.

    By plane

    The nearest airport is Kuala Lumpur International Airport. A coupon or metered budget taxi to or from KLIA will take 30 minutes and cost around RM60. Alternatively, you can take the KLIA Transit from the airport to Putrajaya station and transfer to a taxi.

    KLIA airport

    By train

    For public transport the fastest choice is the KLIA Transit connecting Kuala Lumpur's Sentral train station to its airport, which stops halfway in between at Putrajaya. Trains run every 30 minutes, take 20 minutes and the list price is RM 9.50 one-way, but the RM15 Putrajaya return ticket (valid for one month) is better value.

    Note: KLIA Ekspres services do not stop at Putrajaya.

    ERL train

    By taxi

    Coupon taxis from Kuala Lumpur's KL Sentral cost a fixed RM35, but otherwise you'll have to try out your bargaining skills - figure on RM30-50, and expect to pay more at night.


    By bus

    Bus service is provided from 6:30am until 10pm to and from Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, Serdang commuter station and Sinar Kota in Kuala Lumpur. The bus fare for one-way is around RM 3.50 and takes about 30 minutes-one hour, depends on the traffic flow. Usually, on non-working days the time the buses take to arrive at Putrajaya will be much faster, but the frequency of the buses will be accordingly reduced.

    Metro & Rapid kl bus

    The new Express network by Rapid KL links KL Sentral to Putrajaya with only RM 5 for an unlimited daily pass.

    Shuttle buses to/from KL are provided by some hotels for guests, such as Shangri-la.


    Putrajaya , an "Intelligent Garden City" and the federal administrative capital of Malaysia, is a showcase city under construction some 30 km south of the capital Kuala Lumpur. Her adjacent sister city, Cyberjaya, is built along the same lines, but is aimed at attracting the IT industry. The area was formerly known as Prang Besar.

    Putra Mosque

    Putrajaya covers a vast sprawl of 4,931 hectares, which were mostly palm plantations before the federal government purchased the lot from the surrounding state of Selangor. The city's masterplan is designed along an axial tangent which runs from the northeast to southeast, with gently undulating terrain. About 40% of Putrajaya is natural, but the landscape has been extensively reworked by man: lush greenery and botanical gardens are spread across the landscape, crisscrossed by large bodies of water and wetlands. Five confluences meet at the north forming a main waterway, the Putrajaya Lake, which flows across the city area.


    The project was started in 1993 and the federal capital officially moved in 1999, although the site is still far from complete. Putrajaya became a self-governing federal territory (wilayah persekutuan) in 2001, the third in Malaysia after Kuala Lumpur and the little oddball island of Labuan.

    The name literally means "princes' (putra) success (jaya)". Officially, the site is named in homage to Malaysia's first prime minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra.

    Ever since the Asian economic crisis of 1998 development has slowed down markedly, and while there aren't any of the rusting half-built concrete shells that still litter KL and Bangkok, the careful eye will spot more than a couple of once cleared and dug-up but now abandoned fields (often with a crane or two stuck in the mud too). Basically, the infrastructure is largely in place but the buildings and occupants aren't, leading to the impression of a giant swath of hilly jungle crisscrossed by 8-lane highways with no other cars on them, and the occasional beautifully sculpted lake garden with no people in sight.

    Putra Mosque Cafetaria

    That said, the area remains under heavy construction and both people and companies are slowly moving in. As of 2006, the population has surpassed 50,000, although there's still a long way to go to the targeted 300,000. Inevitably, development isn't always occurring in expected ways: Cyberjaya has to date mostly succeeded in attracting call centers and data warehouses, not R&D laboratories. The new twin cities may look very different in 5-10 years' time.
