Putrajaya Roundabout, the world’s largest roundabout that has a circumference of 3.4 kilometers!

2 min read

The Putrajaya Roundabout in the administrative capital of Malaysia holds the Guinness record for the world’s largest roundabout.
In fact, It measures 3.4km in circumference and features 15 entry/exit points!

Located in the heart of Putrajaya, the Persiaran Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Roundabout, know simply as Putrajaya Roundabout, is one of the most unusual attractions in the Southeast Asian country.
A feat of modern infrastructure engineering and designed by renowned Malaysian architect Hijjas Kasturi, it was inaugurated in 2003, and it is built around Istana Melawati, the second-largest palace of Malaysia’s Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the Putra Perdana Landmark, and a luxurious five-star hotel.
It is also the main access point to Putrajaya’s major attractions, including the prime minister’s green-domed office complex and the city’s enormous mosque.

Measuring over 2 miles or, if you prefer, 3.4km, in circumference, the Putrajaya Roundabout is humongous by roundabout standards, but because of its elliptical shape and the fact that traffic only flows in one direction, it is a functional roundabout, but the same cannot be said about its main rival, a slightly larger roundabout in Trinidad and Tobago’s Port-of-Spain.
Measuring around 2.3 miles or 3.7km in circumference, Queen’s Park Savannah is technically the largest roundabout in the world, but it is yet to be officially recognized as such because of its peculiar shape.
The giant roundabout, in fact, is anything but round: in order to traverse it, one has to turn no fewer than five 90-degree corners, so even though the traffic has been flowing in one direction since the late 1970s, it has not been officially recognized as a roundabout!
