Johor Bahru Old Chinese Temple is one of the oldest temples in Johor, located along Jalan Trus. Also known as the Old Temple, it functions as the worship place of 5 Chinese clans- Hakka, Cantonese, Teochew, Hokkien and Hainan.
Earlier, these clans were rivals over land control issues. When Tian Hiok Nee, a Chinese religious leader, managed to bring about peace between them, he founded the Johor Bahru Old Chinese Temple. Hence, the temple is symbolic of peace and unity.
A highlighting feature of the temple is the Tien Gong incense pot placed at the entrance. The mini cultural centre located in the premise has historical relics on display.
