How much is the smallest roundabout


The main reason people don't take note is because they tend to think it is just a hill. The circumferential length of this roundabout is approximately 3.4km, and the road that circumvent it is Persiaran Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah. You can see it when you checked on the Google Earth, and the pictures below gives you a pseudo-helicopter view of the Putrajaya roundabout and its surrounding.

Don't be surprised at all that you can discover some things when you drive up to the peak of the roundabout. With its humogous land size, it easily houses the (1) Istana Melawati, (2) Putra Perdana Landmark and (3) Putrajaya Shangri-La Hotel with lots of green space to spare.


(1)Istana Melawati is the royal retreat for the Yang Dipertuan Agong, and it majestically and strategically sits on top of the hill overlooking the Main Boulevard.


(2) The Putra Perdana landmark, known in Bahasa Malaysia as Mercu Tanda is built to commemorate the birth of Putrajaya and it stores the time capsule that was implanted by the then Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir.


(3) Putrajaya Shangri-La Hotel is one of the "luckiest" and most strategic 5-star hotel to be built; on top of the hill and right next to the Istana.
