Johorean culture, also known by Johor Bahru is from Johor. It is found in West Malaysia, Malaysia's southern region. It is a port state which surrounds the Republic Singapore and the South China Sea. Johor is mostly composed of swamps, jungles, and it rises to the east at around 900m. The rich history of Johorean culture goes back to the 15th century. It was originally known as the Kingdom of Johor under Mahmud Shah.

Alauddin and Mahmud Shah, who were only rulers, helped rebuild culture and peoples' lives after the Portuguese took Malacca. Johorean culture grew further during the 18th century when Johor was taken under the Riau Islands rule. Later, the Birtish regime made Johor an independent country. The Sultan HRH Major Sultan Ibrahim Ismail, the 25th Sultan of Johor, currently controls the state.

Johor was the home of South Indian workers and Chinese pepper traders up to the middle 18th century. Johor is home to a lot of rubber and palm tree plantation. Many immigrants came to Johor because of this. It was evident that Johorean culture was integrating with thousands of immigrant cultures. It was more than rubber and palm oil. Johor is also well-known for its iron, zinc and pineapple deposits.
