In late 2011, I went to Malaysia for a pleasure trip. I stayed at Damansara, not very far away from KL. Here I found my long lost friend and class mate Afsana Jahan, who came all the way from Gombak to Damansara, only to see me with her children. We had a girls’ day out once she drove me to Putrajaya, Malaysia’s administrative city.
Here are some of the pictures I took of the city Putrajaya while on my way in her car.
This Seri Saujana Bridge was really a fabulous piece of architecture!
Here are some more snapshots of buildings I took of some buildings there from her car.
The picture above is of Masjid Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, known as Steel Mosque. I took the snapshot while stepping out of her car during sunset around Putrajaya. This is the second principal mosque in Putrajaya, Malaysia after Putra Mosque.
The Putrajaya is a beautifully planned town and is worth a visit. This is the Federal Government Administrative Center of Malaysia; not very far away from the capital Kuala Lumpur (KL). The administrative capital was shifted from the capital KL to free the capital from traffic congestion.
The picture above is a view of one of the administrative buildings of the city (possibly the Ministry of Finance) that I took while on the go. This shot I managed to take while I was inside her car. The city is spotless, clean, and beautifully maintained.
Here is an aerial view of the city; a beautiful video uploaded by Yusmar Yahya YouTube channel:
Boldly standing with beautiful architecture is the Masjid Putra (Putra Mosque) which is majestic place for worship. I visited the place with my friend and her children. She offered prayers there. I was modestly dressed and therefore needed no gown or hood to cover myself. However, I missed the floor sign that wrote/depicted, ‘no shoes’ inside a particular area and therefore I was given a somber threat through a gesture from one of the curators of the mosque.
Being a Muslim myself, I could understand what he meant while his gesture meant something else that was very unwelcoming! However, this is what that could turn-off most of the people away, i.e. those who do not know much about this religion might misunderstand the religion and thus harbor negative feelings! There is no attitude problem in the religion, but only with some people’s ignorant attitudes who forget the teachings and the motto of this beautiful religion.
Here is a YouTube video of the iconic Putra Mosque in Putrajaya, uploaded by Aerialogy/Aerializm. This is video could relax your mind by letting you experience the vivid serenity and calmness of this mosque.
Here is another beautiful YouTube video by Hafiz Ismail in his own YouTube channel. The video is on the ‘time lapse of a majestic sunset at Putra Mosque’, Enjoy:
I hope you had fun while taking these magnificent virtual aerial tours in this blog post! See you soon!
