From outside it is a beautiful building, unfortunately it is closed to public when we arrived there 😫 been hoping to get a lot of beautiful photos there. Hopefully they will open back to the public.

The Grand Palace Park is the gardens in the grounds of the Grand Palace of Johor. It’s a superbly landscaped and maintained park. The garden overlooks the Straits of Johor and offers great views of the surrounding areas as befits a palace. However, it doesn’t appear to be open to the public. Several of the entrances were closed. There’s even some very serious warning signs about trespassing (see my photos). It’s a nice landmark building even though you can really only see it from afar.

Somehow, the Grabcar dropped the door which we cannot enter the park area and we cannot even see the beauty of the palace

Grand Palace Park (Istana Besar) is the royal palace of Johor Bahru which is currently used for state banquets and royal functions, therefore it is closed for public entry. So can view the majestic architecture from a distance. This palace and Sultan Abu Bakar State Mosque are located in near by areas.

Don't really understand... From outside seems very nice.. Green, well treated and lots of trees... But is not, for visiting or enjoy... Is closed, fenced and guarded... Also you will find several sign, if you try go in they can shut you... We were looking a place with some green, to run out of busy and dirty Jb ...annoying... Frustrated...

It's a nice stop over for a quick photo. The view is nice but the royal guards are quite strict so better stay far from the gate.

A shining crown with a spotlit jewel highlights fountains and other garden elements to make for a great photo op. Stop by and take a few shots.

I used to have great memories of this place as a children at age 3-4. Not sure my age when i first went there. Overall i notice it is still clean with regular maintenance. This is the first spot i will recommend to my foreign buddies in Johor for the first time.
