“downtown temple”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Well worth a stop while in JB. Small temple with a few different areas.

Most of the other visitors are using the temple - not tourists. I doubt it will take long to visit, 15 minutes maybe, but it is a nice temple. Also there really isn't much amazing in JB so while this may be average I think it is almost "don't miss" for JB (given the lack of truly remarkable sites).

It is right in the main downtown area near the Sultan Ibrahim, Indian temple, Sikh temple, Masjid India Mosque and City Square Mall.

“Small temple,filled with the passion of Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Dun know how to describe, cos u will of cos feel surprisingly small this temple is, but if u have the chance to come to the parade at every 21 of first month in Chinese calendar, then u can understand what Johoe Old Chinese Temple means for every Chinese Johorean.

“Interesting local colour . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Popped over cos it was just next to my hotel (Puteri Pacific) and they were having a major festival then. Very crowded, very lively, very colourful, very exciting to watch. The temple itself is also cool as it is a functioning real place of worship used by locals, with authentic local sights (temple decor, local worshippers), sounds (prayers, chants) and smells (incense).

“Nothing soectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Very small and non-picturesque on the outside. We were lucky, though, as it was Chinese New Year, so there were many people around, and they were very helpful and willing to explain things to us.
