Venue for the Johor Arts Festival and other civic activities. Fantastic backdrop for wedding photos and the like. When it was in use as State govt centre there was a huge sheltered car park at the bottom of the building with all the official State cars parked side by side in two long lines. Quite a sight!

It is located at Bukit Timbalan, in front of Kotaraya shopping Complex. It is also known as Sultan Ibrahim Building, completed in 1940. The offices of the State Secretariat have moved to Kota Iskandar, Nusa Jaya. Nowadays, quite a number of wedding photographs were being shoot there.
