Johor (Jawi script: جوهر ; also known by its Arabic honorific, Darul Ta'zim, or "Abode of Dignity"), also spelled Johore, is a Malaysian state, located in the southern portion of Peninsular Malaysia. It is one of the most developed states in Malaysia. The capital city and royal seat of Johor is Johor Bahru, formerly Tanjung Puteri (Malay for Princess' Cliff). The old state capital is Johor Lama.
Johor is surrounded by Pahang to the north, Malacca and Negeri Sembilan to the northwest, and the Straits of Johor to the south which separates Malaysia from the Republic of Singapore. Tanjung Piai, in the district of Pontian, is the most southerly point of mainland Asia.
