Interesting Places In Malaysia
The word 'souq' originates from mid-Eastern countries and is used to describe a market place or a bazaar. So you can expect the Souq bazaar at Putra Square (Precinct 1) to be a little bit like the bazaars of Istanbul. Located at the lower ground level, under the Putra Mosque, the Souq is no ordinary bazaar. This business district, while still new, is slowly, but surely becoming a happening place in Putrajaya.
Some 50 trade stalls sell goods ranging from domestic items to light home-based industrial products. Souq also offers high-quality goods such as fashion and accessories, gifts and handicrafts, as well as designer goods such as Renoma, U2, Adidas and lots more. You will also find a comfortable Food Hall where you can enjoy a meal at one of several distinguished food and drinks outlets.
The Souq aims to capture the true essence of the market bazaar through the use of rich and highly patterned materials, exquisite murals and artwork.
