Putrajaya at nite

Putrajaya is a planned city and a Federal Territory that acts as a federal government administration centre of Malaysia moved from the overcrowding and congestion of Kuala Lumpur. However, Kuala Lumpur still serves as Malaysia's national and legislative capital. The city is located at 2°55' North, 101°40' East (2.91667, 101.667).

The city is named after the first Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra. In Bahasa Melayu, "Putra" means prince while "Jaya" means excellent or success. The city has only been raised recently and it is still undergoing massive development.

To the west is Cyberjaya, a cybercity, also located within the Multimedia Super Corridor
