Have you ever wondered what the prime minister’s residence in Putrajaya looks like inside?

Well, this is your opportunity to find out because the PM’s official residence at Seri Perdana is now open to the public for six days a week. The official website of Seri Perdana said that the building “belongs to the people” and thus, they have decided to open its doors to the public.

If you didn’t know, Seri Perdana Complex was built in 1997 and since then, it has been the official residence of the Malaysian PM until Tun M decided not to move in. The design and landscape of the building is a mixture of Malay, Islamic and European heritage and culture.

That being said, the public will only have access to the Protocol and Banquet Blocks of the residence. The rooms you can expect to see in these blocks are as follows:

1. Protocol Block;

  • Main guest room 
  • Special guest room 
  • Waiting room 
  • Meeting room 
  • Special banquet hall 

2. Banquet Block; 

  • Banquet hall 
  • Gallery

The abovementioned rooms are normally used to host international and local VVIPs like a country’s chief or a state chief. Sounds fancy.

If you’re already planning to visit the PM’s residence, here’s what you need to know: Apart from solo tours, guided tours are also available to the public and each tour lasts for an hour and 30 minutes. The solo and guided tour timings are as shown below:

  • Monday to Thursday (guided tour & walk-in): 9am – 12.30pm; 2pm – 4pm
  • Saturday & Sunday (walk-in): 9am – 12.30pm; 2pm – 4pm
  • School holiday (walk-in): 9am – 12.30pm; 2pm – 4pm

Do keep in mind that the bookings for the guided tour have to be made at least one week in advance. Visitors can make reservations for the official guided tours via Seri Perdana’s website.

However, the residence will not be open to the public on Fridays, public holidays or when it is needed for official functions. Take note, guys! 

Since this is an official building, there are several protocols that visitors need to obey when visiting the place. The protocols are listed below:

  • Visitors must be dressed properly.
  • Visitors must bring along their IC (identification card) or passport.
  • Visitors are not allowed to make recordings while inside the building. 

Remember them when you visit ok? They’re easy-peasy to follow.

If you would like to know more about this new initiative, you can head over to the Seri Perdana website for more information.

Sounds like a good opportunity to learn more about this place if you ask us. Let us know in the comments if you will be visiting this place anytime soon!
