PUTRA JAYA - MALAYSIA
Istana Melawati
Putra Jaya Short Tour main page

Istana Melawati is located in Precinct 1, on the north-western slope of the hill within Persiaran Persekutuan.

This is to be the royal retreat for His Majesty The Yang Di Pertuan Agong and his family, the venue for meetings with other Rulers and Yang Di Pertua Negeri as well as the venue for certain official and private functions hosted bythe Yang Di Pertuan Agong.

The Istana shall be oriented south-west towards the general direction of the Putra Bridge - Lake area. The elevated position on the hill gives it a strong presence befitting the status of a Palace, cascading down the slope gently from the higher southern level to the lower north-western corner of the hill.

The main façade of the Istana shall address the scenic views of the Putrajaya Lake, Jambatan Seri Perdana, Seri Perdana Putrajaya, Perdana Putra Building, Masjid Putra and the Mercu Tanda in Taman Putra Perdana

From the old timber mosques of Kelantan, Melaka and Terengganu to the classical court buildings of other regional buildings in South East Asia, the square-based pyramidal roof forms a very distinctive and prominent style. Its utilization on the Istana Melawati as tower structures or security watch towers further enhances its strong architectural silhouette and character.

Another popular feature of tropical Malay architecture incorporated is the "bumbung limas" or sometimes referred to as "bumbung perabung lima" (five-ridge roof).

Befitting the status of the Istana Melawati as a Royal Palace, the roof forms are arranged on tiered levels - symbolizing the prominent status of the buildings. Decorative fascia pieces further enhance the features of the Istana.

The open-sided verandah is also featured prominently throughout the Istana Melawati, acting as a very important interface between nature and the built environment in vernacular tropical architecture. The verandahs will enable the enjoyment of scented flowers and herbs will be extensively used in the series of "Taman Indera" or Royal Pleasure Gardens of Istana Melawati.
