Inaugurated on February 4, 2003 by Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Taman Botani Putrajaya is among the earliest parks to open in Putrajaya.
Sprawled over 230 acres next to a vast lake, the Putrajaya Botanical Garden is also known as the ‘mother of all gardens’ in this federal territory.
It is divided into eight botanical themes, namely: Malaysian Ulam and Medicinal, Bambusetum, Zingiberales, Edible Fruit Arboretum, Lawn and Gramineae, Forest Fringe and Aboriginal Medicinal Plants, Conservatory and Ecological Pond.
Besides floral attractions with over 750 plants from different continents, the gardens has an ethnobotany and conservation sector that plants crops and endangered wild plants for research and conservation purposes.
Taman Botani Putrajaya was acknowledged as one of Asia’s Most Amazing Gardens by the Royal Chelsea Foundation at London’s Royal Chelsea Flower Show in 2008.
It also houses the popular Astaka Morocco (Moroccan Pavilion), inspired by Moroccan heritage and architecture.
Walk or cycle around the Putrajaya Botanical Gardens – a leisurely walk will take you hours especially if you stop ever so often to take photos of the abundant exotic tropical trees and flowers from across the globe.
Must visit areas include the Explorer’s Trail (where the exciting tree-high Canopy Bridge is located), Palm Hill (boasting of over 50 species of palm trees), Sun Gardens (housing plants that bloom well under lots of sunlight), Floral Gardens (exhibiting flowering plants from the Americas, Africa and Asia Pacific) and the Lakeside (which has an array of ixoras, hibiscus and ferns).
Admission to the Taman Botani Putrajaya is free. Separate charges apply for admission to the Astaka Morocco (Moroccan Pavilion) and for activities including tram rides and bicycle rental.
