Place : Morocco Pavilion


I love finding new places to explore.

This was taken at Morocco Pavilion , Botanical Garden, Putrajaya quite a while ago. I've been to Botanical Garden many years before but I never knew the existence of such place.

Back then when I was young and just finished high school, with my big optimistic mind, I applied for a scholarship in architecture. But I never got any reply back from them, leaving the little dream behind, like any other things that didn't happened.

But I am still very much interested in architecture, as a private amusement. The look, the feel, the artistic values it bring, the reason, the existence. When I walked through those corridors, when my fingers touched the wall, my heart leaped, thanking the architect along with the ideas and inspirations that came from our Creator. Human can't do all this by himself. They are too majestic.

Those intricate carvings are very beautiful, I didn't really mind if it was actually mold-plastered and not originally carved. The idea was there, and I am thanking the Malaysian Government for bringing this to us. It is the closest that I can reach at this moment. 

And one day, I hope I can really see the original historical Moroccan architecture and probably other Islamic architecture in the famous Turkey too.  

Read more about Putrajaya's architecture from Tun Mahathir's blog, here
Unfortunately a new building has been added which is made up of glass, with no architectural features. It is not very imaginative as it looks like match boxes stacked on each other. It would be fantastic for New York but it is not Putrajaya. It is not very Malaysian or Islamic. It is in fact entirely out of place.

  3. how did I not notice this place in Putrajaya?

    I mean, I went to the botanical garden already.

    Maybe I haven't explored the place thoroughly.

    Must go there when I'm back in Selangor!
