rises majestically from a 25-hectare park in Precinct 2. Constructed
of solid metal, this national monument is uniquely shaped like an
obelisk with etchings denoting important milestones and periods
in the nation’s history. At night, it serves as a beacon with lights
projected at 360 degrees. It is visible from various locations in
Putrajaya.
Putrajaya’s popularity among water sports enthusiasts can be
attributed to the modern sporting facilities that are readily
