The mosque is named after the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al Hajj. Upon completion on 1st. September, 1999 this principal mosque of Putrajaya has constantly been receiving visitors from all over the world.
Today, this 1.37 hector site of Putra Mosque is the most popular place of worship visited by the locals and foreign tourists. The view from the lake while cruising is just simply amazing as part of the mosque is encircled by the lake. During school holidays and weekends the area is packed with tourist buses and vans. It takes about 45 minutes from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya but it is closer from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
