The Prime Minister’s official residence, Seri Perdana, is now open to the public six days a week.
According to the official Seri Perdana website, the building “belongs to the people” and is therefore open to the public.
Visitors can go on guided tours of the residence and will have access to the Protocol and Banquet blocks.
Guided tours are held from Monday to Thursday except on public holidays or during official functions.
Each guided tour will take between 30 minutes to one hour.
Walk-ins are permitted every day except on Fridays, public holidays, and days when official functions are held.
Located at Precinct 10, Putrajaya, Seri Perdana is also open for public viewing on Saturday as well as Sunday.
Bookings must be made at least seven days in advance.
Visitors are required to be properly dressed and bring along identification documents such as an identity card or passport.
They are also forbidden from making any recordings while inside the building.
Seri Perdana began construction in 1997 and was completed in 1999, on 42.5 acres of hilly land.
It features a mixture of Malay, Islamic and European design ideas.
Its first resident was Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad when he was the fourth prime minister of Malaysia and has since housed two others.
