Sitting majestically atop Bukit Timbalan, the Sultan Ibrahim Building is perhaps the single most distinctive structure symbolizing Johor Bahru. It was built in 1940 during the British rule of Malaya. Today, it houses the state secretariat and other departments of the state government. Despite the emergence of modern skyscrapers, the construction—with its distinctive Saracenic design and prominent tower—still dominates the cityscape. From its lofty position, you can catch breathtaking views of the Johor Straits, the Causeway and the Singapore skyline. Connoisseurs of architecture will appreciate the exquisite mosaic detail, particularly in the throne room.
