Inside the Putrajaya Botanical Gardens, surrounded by landscaped gardens and beside a lake, lies the exquisite Moroccan Pavilion that is bound to take your breath away.

Built as a symbol of cultural exchange between Malaysia and Morocco, the pavilion highlights the truly spectacular architecture and arts of Morocco.

Completed in 2 years with materials imported directly from Morocco, highly-skilled craftsmen and builders from the North African country were involved in the construction in order to closely replicate the enchantments and authenticity of the structures.

Following closely the distinctive features of Morocco’s oldest imperial cities, the colourful mosaic arrangements of the pavilion are embellished with ornate carvings of Arabic calligraphy, geometrical patterns and arabesque designs.

Complemented with a hint of cedarwood scent emanating from the intricately-carved wooden doors, wall panels and furniture, the designs here combine the beauty of Moroccan architecture with Islamic culture and heritage.

Do take a stroll along the walkway outside of the building as you will be greeted with a mixture of greeneries, colourful flowers and a panoramic view of the lake at the Putrajaya Botanical Gardens.

Price/entrance fees

To enter the Moroccan Pavilion, you need to buy a ticket from the main entrance of the Putrajaya Botanical Gardens, which is located about 5 minutes walk away.

    Astaka Morocco is a beautiful Instagram place but there are just some things you have to get them straight. We know that visitors are not supposed to have a handphone or camera stand within the grounds (unless u pay for photography & videography) but many visitors are doing it. However, one female security guard singled me out to tell me that handphone stand is not allowed. How come she doesn’t do that to other visitors? It is so unfair. I visited Astaka on 3 Nov 2023.
