This site is one of the instagrammable buildings in JB. This is Johor's State Secretariat Bldg and known as Sultan Ibrahim Bldg. It was Johor's administrative center before it was transferred to Kota Iskandar.

This is a government building situated on top of a hill and you can see it when you are driving around downtown JB. The place is closed to public, but you can take some nice photos from the grounds outside.
