A Peek at Malaysia: The Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque

On our second day, we joined a Johor Bahru, Malaysia Tour. Johor Bahru is just a bridge (and a long queue for immigration checks) away from Singapore, so we decided to check it out.

The tour’s most interesting stop was at Masjid Sultan Abu Bakar (or the Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque), which is one of the oldest and most beautiful mosques in Malaysia. Sultan Abu Bakar is considered the ‘Father of Modern Johor’.
