Putra Mosque (GPS: 2.93558, 101.6903), officially called Masjid Putra, is the biggest mosque in Putrajaya, and one of its most prominent landmarks. Sitting as if afloat on Putrajaya Lake in Precinct 1, Putra Mosque consists of three main functional areas - the prayer hall, the "Sahn" or courtyard, learning facilities and function rooms. The prayer hall is supported by 12 columns, with the highest point below the dome being 250 feet above ground level. The "Sahn" is landscaped with decorative water features and bordered by colonnades. The minaret is 116m tall - the tallest in the region.

Putra Mosque is capable of accommodationg 15,000 worshippers at any one time also houses. The mosque is modeled after Persian Islamic architecture of the Safavid period with several elements derived from other Muslim cultures. As with all mosques, the Putra Mosque faces Kiblat, the direction of Mecca. The main entrance is patterned after gates to public buildings in Muslim Persia. The building was constructed mainly with rose-tinted granite, offset by brown-stained cengal woodwork to enhance the decorative features on the doors, windows and panels.
