The Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple is truly an astounding sight to behold. It is situated in Johor Bahru and is one of the top tourist attractions in that state.

The chairman of the temple, Guru Bhagawan Sittar had the inspiration to decorate the temple with glass. Work started in 2008 and was completed on January 3, 2009. The Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple became Malaysia’s one and only, and the world’s first glass temple.

Ninety percent of the Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple is embellished by a mosaic of 300,000 pieces of red, blue, yellow, green, purple and white glass. Light from the crystal chandeliers reflect on the doors, pillars, wall and ceilings. There are ten gold-finished sculptures portraying the cycle of life, from birth, youth, adulthood to old age and death. Inside this beautiful temple, there are also statues of Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and other saints.

This temple has won many accolades including being listed in the Malaysia Book of Records and cited in Lonely Planet’s new book, Secret Marvels of the World 2017 as the first and only glass temple in the country.
