The Seri Perdana Complex in Putrajaya has housed several Prime Ministers, including our current one, in the past.
The residential area isn’t for the public and only those with official matters are allowed to enter the area. Well, with the exception of annual festivities such as Hari Raya where the government will open Seri Perdana’s doors to welcome thousands of Malaysians for their open house, that is.
But it seems that the public will no longer have to wait for any celebrations to visit Seri Perdana because the government has decided to open the residence to the public.
According to its official website, the building “belongs to the people”, therefore several parts of the Seri Perdana complex including the Protocol Block
and Banquet Block
can now be accessed by the public.
So, you can now see where the ministers dine and hold their top-secret meetings.
The residence will be opened six days a week, and there will also be guided tours from Monday to Thursday, excluding public holidays and on days where there are official functions.
Visitors who wish to join the guided tour must email their bookings at least seven days before their trip.
Each visit is limited to one hour and 30 minutes and visitors must present their identification cards or passport during registration.
