As some background, let me share two facts about myself… (1) I’m a Westerner living in Johor and have so far been incredibly underwhelmed by “attractions” in this part of the world; and (2) I’m not Hindu.
But I was literally blown away by the Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple. It is so stunning, and unique… I’ve honestly never seen anything like it. Once the initial wonder wears off, there’s not really much to keep you there for more than 20-30min, but the first few minutes was very special.
The fee structure was a little confusing… charges for non-locals to enter, charges for shoe storage, charges for taking photos etc… But as non-locals we paid RM10 for entry, and that included everything.
We drove here and got lost twice. We asked for directions and were shown to another temple with a similar name (it was called Arulmigu Rajamariamman Devasthanam and is a fairly typical practicing Hindu temple). Eventually we parked the car, jumped in a taxi and paid RM5 to be driven, and then realized why we couldn’t find it on our own. The Glass Temple isn’t really on a road… it’s more like a track, off an alley, off a road, off a highway.
I would highly recommend this attraction to even the most travel-weary visitors… I would even recommend international tourists visiting Singapore make the trek into Johor for Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman.
