Putrajaya Millenium Monument for Monochrome Maniacs
The Millennium Monument is a national monument in Putrajaya, Malaysia. It looks similar to the Washington Monument in Washington DC. The monument is made of solid metal structures. It is uniquely shaped like an obelisk with etchings denoting important periods and milestones in our nation’s history.
The monument stands tall at 68m. It is located in a 25 hectare park in Precinct 2, the venue for Floria 2009 and Floria 2010. It is just opposite the National Registration Department or Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara.
There is a cruise operator nearby offering cruises and water sports. There is also a cafe "Ceritera" serving local food and drinks.
At night, the monument serves as a beacon with strong light projected at 360 degrees and sweeping lights visible from various locations in Putrajaya. The lights also guide the cruise boats.
