About Johor Bahru
Satellite view is showing Johor Bahru (also spelled Johor Baharu), second largest city in Malaysia, the South East Asian nation which consists of two regions, Peninsular Malaysia, south of Thailand, and East Malaysia on the island of Borneo.
The city is located on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula within walking distance of Singapore that lies to the south. Johor Bahru is connected with the city-state by a causeway.
Until 1855 Johor Bahru was a small fishing village, this changed when Johor's Temenggung (a noble title) established his administrative headquarters at the site. By the early 1850s, Johor was effectively under the control of the Temenggung, despite that Sultan Ali was the official ruler.
Today Johor Bahru is the capital of the Malayan state of Johor, the city has a population of about 500,000 people, 1.8 million people live in the metropolitan area of the southernmost city on the Eurasian mainland.
