It's worth seeking out this complex as you wander around the centre of JB. It's quite an easy one to find and you can even see it in the distance as you arrive at the Malaysian immigration checkpoint building.

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.
