This glass temple is sadly not made of huge slabs of glass. Instead, very small pieces of glass tiles have been laid, mosaic style, on the walls and pillars. It all looks rather cheap and gaudy. When it first opened, it was clean and bright and fully air-conditioned. The air-conds have failed one by one over time, and none seem... More

Pieces of mirrors placed mosaic-ly to temple wall. Went during festival, crowds with bhajan. Was nice peaceful atmosphere inside. Airconditioned inside. Worth visit.

Popular landmark along Ah Fook St/Tebrau especially Western tourists fascinated by the intricate temple carvings/artwork by Hindu artisans. Makes a cultural contrast to the modern shopping malls & shops along this JB city center.

I visited this temple due to the hype surrounding it. The temple is not centrally located and you need to access a slip road to get to it. Upon arrival, you will find that it is not a very big temple. The entrance is small but once you enter, you will be greeted with grandeur. Everything, and I mean everything... More

We were told this was the Glass Palace....it did look like a mosaic...very sparkly, and beautifully finished. There were things to purchase, that were overpriced. The overall experience was amazing, but small. You could do this in 15 minutes or even less.

Visited the temple for the first time. Beautiful structure - as you already know made of glass. One has to pay to snap photos, although not permitted in some areas. The temple is not very far from Singapore Woodlands customs. Cab ride is about RM 11 (ringgit).

The temple surely has the world class architecture, the first and perhaps the only kovel in Malaysia made of glass. It is the pride of Johorean except some Indian gang had took advantage of this Hindu holy place to collect protection money from tourist parking at the free park around the area. At some point they even had the gut... More
