It is the oldest religious structure in Johor Bahru and is the most visited by both devotees as well as visitors. According to historical plaques, the temple was operational in 1870. That's more than 140 years ago.

It is believed that the temple was the first and only temple to be named after Malaysian states. It was constructed by religious Chinese leaders, including Mr Tan Hiok Nee, founder of Ngee Heng Co.

It is a cultural and religious attraction that remains. The Chingay, or Parade of the Deities, is its busiest time. During this event, statues of the temple are paraded through the streets. The annual procession of deities is organized by the temple. It usually takes place on the 20th or 23rd lunar month in the Chinese calendar.

The parade lasts for four days. The highlight is the third night when all deities are paraded around Johor Bahru. The celebrations are lively with gongs, drums, and lion and dragon dances. Devotees will be carrying the deities out of the temple into the streets.
