Sipadan Supreme Diving
Bill and Nicola had visited the west coast islands and were convinced that there was something 'special' about this country. This was only enhanced by subsequent trips to Sabah, Sandakan and the diving paradise centred on Sipadan Island where they unearthed a conflation of well-priced diving and amazing dive sites.

   Putra Mosque

The pink-domed Putra Mosque is constructed with rose-tinted granite and can accommodate 15,000 worshippers at any one time. The basement wall of the mosque resembles that of the King Hassan Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco.

 

The pink-domed Putra Mosque is constructed with rose-tinted granite and can accommodate 15,000 worshippers at any one time. The basement wall of the mosque resembles that of the King Hassan Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco.

The mosque consists of three main functional areas - the prayer hall, the Sahn, or courtyard, and various learning facilities and function rooms. The prayer hall is simple and elegant, supported by 12 columns. The highest point below the dome is 250 feet above ground level.

The Sahn, landscaped with several decorative water features and bordered by colonnades, provides a huge yet welcoming and beautiful prayer space.

Its impressive minaret is influenced by the design of the Sheikh Omar Mosque in Baghdad. At 116m, it is one of the tallest minarets in the region and has five tiers, representing the Five Pillars of Islam.

Key Tips
At the lakeside, you are able to rent a kayak or rowboat for a gentle cruise on the lake. Late afternoon or early evening, when the weather has cooled down, is the best time for this activity.

By Car
To be perfectly honest, taking a public bus to and from Putrajaya, especially if you're staying in faraway KL, is extremely impractical. Your best bet is to hire a car or a taxi for the day to better explore Putrajaya.
