does the city have a chinese name? :)
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. :)

PutrayJaya is Sakskrit word. Putra means son and Jaya means place so it means the place of the son.
