This is Johor Bahru’s Hindu temple and a heritage place of worship for the community. The temple is open to visitors. This “glass” monument includes many exceptional interior features. Built in 1922, it is among the oldest temples of Johor Bahru. Interestingly, the land for this temple was contributed by the Sultan of Johore to the Hindus. In the initial years the temple existed in the form of a small hut. But as it grew in importance as a both religious and tourist centre, its size considerably increased, making it one of the biggest Hindu shrines of Johor Bahru.
