Johor Old Chinese Temple
Flanked by modern skyscrapers, this temple is one of the oldest structures in Johor Bahru. A group of Chinese community leaders, led by Tan Hiok Nee, built it in the late-19th century. In 1995-1996, it underwent a major renovation at a cost of MYR1.5 million. Much of its cultural aura is preserved, however, and important relics such as the century-old bronze bell, joss stick pot and wooden tablet remain. The temple plays host to the five main Chinese gods of the Hainanese, Cantonese, Hakka, Hokkien and Teochew dialect groups.
