Sultan Ibrahim Building

Sultan Ibrahim Building was built between 1936 and 1939, officially opened in 1940 by Sultan Ibrahim himself. The building uniquely features a combination of Western and Malay architecture with its Saracenic design and tower. This building is a landmark in Johor Bahru as it used to be the tallest building during the pre-independence era. During the Japanese invasion, the building was taken by the Japanese to be used as a fortress and command centre to spy the British in Singapore. The building was also damaged during the war and the painful scars remain visible to date. After the Japanese left, the building continued to serve loyally for 69 years, housing the Chief Minister’s office and State Assembly Hall until they were both moved to Kota Iskandar in 2009.
