Ihe State Legastive Assembly Hall is Malaysia's first parliament that's open to the public. Integrated within the Hall are symbolisms of Johor's past and bright future, such as black pepper motifs. There are also many lush gardens, such as the Musk Lime Garden (Laman Kasturi) and Potpourri Garden (Laman Bunga Rampai). The Jauhar Atrium contains tropical plants and a waterfall. The building is named after The late Sultan Ismail Al-Khalidi ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Ibrahim Al-Masyhur. Behind the building is Kota Iskandar Mosque, a Johor second state mosque.
