The origin of the word Johor derived from the Arabic word “Jauhar” meaning “Precious Jewel”. Arabic influences are very obvious where the Arab traders had come here to do spice trade, which was once very well known. Johor was also known as The End Land or “Gangganu” by the Siamese, which means “precious stones”.
The opening of the State of Johor began in the early 16th century when Melaka was conquered by the Portuguese. Sultan Mahmud Syah, who was last heir to the Melaka throne had escaped and opened the Johor Government. At that time, Johor had expanded its empire until Riau.
