Johor Bahru Old Chinese Temple

Taoist Temple in Johor Bahru

Once the centre of JB's Chinese immigrant community, and used by five different ethnic groups to worship five different Chinese gods, this small but atmospheric temple is more than 130 years old. Little remains of its original masonry after major renovations in 1995, but it does house some genuine antiques. In the first lunar month of every year, the temple organises a chingay, a procession through the city honouring the five deities.
