Putrajaya is the new Administrative Centre of the Federal Government of Malaysia taking the capital city away from Kuala Lumpur , leaving Kuala Lumpur as the country's financial and commercial capital. Moving the national administrative machinery from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya is in line with the Government's policy to provide a more balanced development away from Kuala Lumpur. It is a decision motivated by life in Kuala Lumpur and ensure continued growth in the Klang Valley.

The name Putrajaya is made of up of two words :

Putra - taken from the name of Malaysia’s first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj.
Jaya – meaning victory or success in Malay. Many newly developed townships in Malaysia bear this additional “Jaya”.

It’s worth mentioning that both words “putra” and “jaya” are essentially Sanskrit in nature. :)

The complete chinese name for Putrajaya is 布特拉再也。But in short, most people here call it 布城。
