This temple is both heritage and legacy, Built at 1911 and it is still the best outlived temple among all in Johor. Temple priests are warm and friendly. Proper dresscode is required.

Arulmigu Rajamariamman Devasthanam, which had its humble beginnings in the year 1911, today is magnificently seated in the centre of the business district of Johor Bahru which itself speaks volumes of the inherent divinity of Arulmigu Rajamaraiamman.

Didn't really like the fact that we are kinda forced to 'donate' if we take any picture (even with phone). I dont mind donating but i would prefer donating voluntarily Otherwise it's a pretty unique temple to visit
