The Arulmigu Rajamariamman Devasthanam Temple

 MG 1081-HDR

This Hindu temple is on Jalan Ungku Puan and was established in 1911 when Sultan Abu Baker donated a piece of land and some funds to help build a temple for all Hindu devotees in Johor Bahru. The Goddess Mariamman is the main deity here and in honour of the kind gesture of the Sultan, the temple was renamed Raja Mariamman as Raja in Tamil means Sultan or King.

To enter the temple, I had to remove my sun hat and shoes, and then I was free to walk around inside amongst the worshippers. Here are some images of the building and people of the temple.
