The latest federal administrative capital known as Putrajaya was established on the 1st of February 2001. Taking over the administrative functions of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya was built on an expansive marshland and the territory grants many public holidays for its citizens similar to other major states in Peninsular Malaysia. As it is one of the three federal territories formed many years ago, the Federal Territory Day is a public holiday in Putrajaya commemorated annually on February the 1st whereby Putrajaya also allocates public holidays for all major Malaysian festive celebrations.
A list of the 2019 official dates for public holidays in Putrajaya is provided below. Please note that long delays are common during major festive seasons in Malaysia and it is advisable to plan each journey during the peak seasons.
