A temple of worship for the 5 dialets group, it has lots of history feel and it's a nice place to come here for a prayer.
This place means a lot to local Chinese in Johor Bahru. This temple is named as "Gu Miao" in Mandarin to represent its history over the past century. If you are able to read Chinese, you may go through why did our ancestors come to Malaysia and how did they build their clans and this temple to reunite all Chinese... More
The temple is more than 130 years old.

The design and statues in this temple is really something to look at. It really has that very old feel. My friend burned some incense to ward of some bad spirits as she was not feeling well. She is Chinese so she knew what to do.
this the first temple i have ever seen with high wall in front, that makes us hard to see the unique and ancient so called exterior. the temple is guarded by some less friendly officers who seem to be ready to bark to any violation that you might do. pretty much ..there is nothing interesting to see in the temple,...
