The Istana Bukit Serene (Also known as Laman Mahkota) is the official residence for the Sultan of Johor and remains as one of the most famous landmarks in Johor.
The Istana Bukit Serene keeps its gates closed for safety precautions, but visitors can still snap photos and take in the majestic view of the palace. Marvel at the high tower, measuring as high as 35 metres and fully crafted with traditional motives and fascinating carvings.
Inside, a huge garden accentuates the palace and becomes the meeting grounds for celebrations and gatherings of the Royals.
The crown arch that complements the palace was actually built as a gift by the Sultan of Johor for the people. If you’re lucky, you will get to see the Royal Highness himself as he gracefully entertains the tourists. (Source Johor tourism board) #aerialphotography #johorbahru
