Johor Bahru Old Chinese Temple known as Old Temple by the locals, is a Chinese temple located at downtown Johor Bahru of Jalan Trus. The temple is flanked by modern skyscrapers; this temple is one of the oldest structures in Johor Bahru. The temple is a place of worship and a symbol of unity among Five Chinese Dialect Groups which are "Teochew", Hokkien", "Cantonese", "Hakka" and "Hainan".



The temple was built during the 19th Century by then Head of Ngee Heng Company led by Mr. Tan Hiok Nee and various Chinese community leaders. Although there are no actual records regarding the completion of the temple, the plaque and the century-old bronze bell located in the temple shows that the temple is around 130 years old.

Much of its cultural aura was preserved, and important relics such as the century-old bronze bell, joss stick pot and wooden tablet remain. 



The temple hosts 5 Deities. There are: Yuan Tian Shang Di, Hong Xian Da Di, Gan Tian Da Di, Hua Guang Da Di, Zhao Da Yuan Shuai, Every year in the first lunar month, the Temple organizes its annual Chinngay known as the Parade of Deities.

The Chingay parade lasts for four days. The climax of the parade is on the night of the 3rd day where the Deities parade around the Johor Bahru Town. The annual Chingay has attracted more than 300,000 people to march around the major roads of Johor Bahru together with the 5 Deities being worshiped in the Old Temple
