The world’s first glass temple is located in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Oh and take note: it’s a Hindu Temple.

The Arulmigu Sri Rajakaloamman Glass Temple started in 1922 as a shelter. In 1996 (74 years later), the temple was rebuilt and reopened.

Guru Bhagawan Sittar, a chairman at the temple was inspired to decorate the temple with glass.

The transformation started in 2008 and ended on January 3, 2009.

Since then, Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamma aka The Glass Temple is one of the major attractions in Johor Bahru.

Note: No shoes are allowed inside the temple.

Look at the intricate details. Isn’t it beautiful?

See no evil, say no evil and hear no evil. Need I say more?

Every single angle is picture perfect. And you know what? It looks different during the morning and at night. Note: All the photos were taken in the morning. The video below was taken at night!

Here’s a glimpse our The Glass Temple when I went to visit it with my family at night.

Guys, seriously. The video and photos doesn’t give it the beauty and experience any justice. It’s A MUST see when in JB. Oh and I had so much fun that I stayed much longer than I was suppose to because I met new friends too…

Til my next post..
