Glass Temple in Johor

The 87-year-old Arulmigu Sri Raja Kaliamman Temple in Johor is having a complete makeover. Temple President S. Sinathambhy began work on the temple a year ago and has so far calculated costs of around RM3million on the project which should finish by October 2009. He is hopeful that it will become a great tourist attraction and a boon for the area.
Some 300,000 individual pieces of glass, consisting of six colours (red, blue, yellow, green, purple and white) have been meticulously crafted and adorned throughout the temple. It is a fantastic sight, and when finished, will be Malaysia's first 'glass temple.' This will surely be worth a visit, so get the camera batteries fully charged and make a plan to head down to Jalan Tebrau, Johor. The official opening is set for October 25th, 2009.
