Bangunan Dato’ Jaafar Muhammad (BDJM)
Office of the Chief Minister and State Secretariat
Experience a different kind of government office, founded on the unique design concept of "a house within a garden". Here the full beauty of nature is celebrated with an interplay of open spaces, fragrant gardens and water features.
The "house" is reminiscent of the Alhambra palace in Granada, but with a local Johor-Malay twist. To the east are gardens styled after the palace's legendary courtyards, providing an idyllic connection to the waterfront promenade.
Dato' Jaafar bin Muhammad was the first Chief Minister of Johor from 1886-1919.
