(Wisma Putra)

Building is sited on a hill-top surrounded by Taman Wawasan. Traditional architectural features can be seen in the roof design which is an adaptation of the roof of old Malay homes.

Floral motifs adorn the grilles for windows, pillars as well as roof edges. Islamic geometric designs have been introduced into the marble and granite floors.

Palace of Justice

The Palace of Justice, a supposedly impartial establishment with a somewhat partial Islamic architecture. It houses the judicial department in a five-storey administration building, and the courts in a two-storey annexed building.

The internal spaces houses six Courts of Appeals and two Federal Courts  and 20 Judges' Chambers.

Istana Darul Ehsan
As known as Darul Ehsan Palace, is one of the royal residences of the Sultan of Selangor (Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah). Built Tudor-style with a light and deep grey facade, the palace is more of a mansion. Split into six storey and serviced by lifts, the interior is done in gold, cream and subdued yellow.
The grand doors open to a large lobby constructed in a semi-circle.

The grand lobby area of Istana Darul Ehsan, is made out of glossy marble floors.
Grand reception area located one floor below the lobby looks out to a
 splendid view of Putrajaya.

Istana Melawati
Completed in 2003, the Istana Melawati is the second national palace of the king of Malaysia (Yang DiPertuan Agong) after the Istana Negara in Kuala Lumpur. Located in Precinct 1, on the north-western slope of the hill within Persiaran Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah, this is to be the royal retreat for His Majesty, The Yang Di Pertuan Agong. It also serves as the venue for meetings with other Rulers and Yang Di Pertua Negeri as well as the venue for certain official and private functions hosted by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong.

The Istana is built cascading gently down the slope from the higher southern level to the lower north-western corner of the hill offering the scenic views of the Putrajaya Lake and its surrounding area. The square-based pyramidal roof arranged on tiered levels and open-sided verandahs forms a very
distinctive and prominent style.
