I did asked to one Royal family last evening about this building, and Her Royal Highness answered that it was built in the early 1900s. It belongs to Tengku (Princess) Zaharah, daughter of Sultan Abu Bakar, the Sultan of Johore then. After the WW2, they converted the Palace into an Islamic Religious School called Sekolah Ugama Bukit Zaharah. Now the condition of the building is deteriorating. It is situated near the Grand Palace and Royal Garden. For more interesting building photos of Johor Bahru, do check the thumbnail on the far right of this page.
