    The State's Minangkabau Style Museum

    The Cultural Centre and Muzeum, Seremban

    This is the State's Museum and Cultural Centre near the city centre.
    Attached to it as an attractive and well stocked craft shop, privately operated.

    This is also the state's tourism office but sadly, they are yet to comprehend what tourists and travellers are interested in.

    Also within these grounds, are two interesting traditional village houses and it's all free entry.
    In this section on Seremban, you will see a lot more things to do and see that the Government hadn't thought of.

    Jeram Toi Map

    Jeram Toi is located on the trunk road leading to Kuala Klawang. Roads here have changed as the state government has constructed better free-ways here.

    Jeram Toi is a small,idylic waterfall which is visited by more locals rather than tourists...It seems to have been overshadowed by the famed Ulu Bendul waterfalls located on the way to Kuala Pilah..

    I like this place as its more quiet compared to Ulu Bendul...My last trip here was 4 yrs back and much changes have taken place here...

    Activities which can be done here include:

    1. Picnic
    2. Swimming
    3. Trekking
    4. Camping
    and you wanna heal you back ache.

    5. Mother Nature's Natural "Massage"!! hhheeh!
    Just sit under the fast flowing water to experience this..!

    This waterfall has 7 flights of falls and was founded by the British during the colonial times.

    Please read my Jeram Toi travelogue for more information.

    Rumah Minagkabau

    Rumah Minangkabau

    This century old Minangkabau house used to be the home to the Datuk Kelana of Sungai Ujong, Tengku Saiyed Ismail Tengku Sayed Abdul Rahman and his wife Kundur Wan Jaebah, in the late 19th century.

    A unique feature of this house is it was build without a single nail which enable it to be dismantle and re-assemble again and again. In fact, the house was once dismantled and sent to London where it was later meticulously re-assembled for an exhibition in 1924. A couple of years after the exhibition, it was brought back and reassembled at the official residence of the Mentri Besar before it was moved to the Taman Seni Budaya where it is currently being exhibited.

    Sri Bala Thandayuthapani Temple

    by velumagan Updated Dec 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This century old Indian temple, located at Jalan Yam Tuan (Paul Street) is the latest attraction in the town. The temple was built with generous donations from the government, private firms and devotees. From an almost oblivious temple, dwarfed by a nearby shopping mall, it has been turned into a majestic landmark.

    Step inside and you'll be greeted by serenity and an awful lot of handiwork at almost every corner that you set your eyes upon.

    Please dress decently. You are required to leave your footwear outside.

    Negeri Sembilan State Mosque

    A different looking mosque, the Negeri Sembilan state mosque is located at Jalan Dato' Hamzah within the Seremban Lake Garden vicinity.

    Its has a unique design like a blossoming flower with nine poles arise at each corners that represent the nine teritories in Negeri Sembilan. Probably the only common sign of a mosque it has is the tall minaret with an onion shaped dome on its top that confirm its status as a mosque.

    Just like any other mosque, visitors are advised to be decently attired and remove their shoe before entering the mosque

    STATE SECRETARIAT BUILDING

    by daryll Written May 6, 2003
    Another poor picture

    It was built in 1987 between Jalan Dato' Abdul Malek and Jalan Dato' Abdul Kadir. Wisma Federation Building and Dewan Undangan Negeri (State's Conference Hall) are also
    located within this area. The hall's structure is based on the Minangkabau architecture. Visitors will have the opportunity to look at the Istana Hinggap Yang Di Pertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan which is majestically located at the east side of Jalan Dato' Abdul Malek.

    Cultural Complex, Seremban

    by Bjorgvin Updated Sep 19, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Minangkabau is the largest ethnic group of Sumatra (the west central highlands). Some Minangkabau migrated to the Malayan peninsula late in the 19th century and formed a confederation of small states that came to be known as Negri Sembilan (Nine States). Visit the CULTURAL ART CENTRE in Seremban, the capital of Negri Sembilan. It exhibits local handicraft such as porcelain, woodcraft, batik etc. The house is built entirely of wood and has a unique roof in the shape of a buffalo's tusk like the traditional houses of Minangkabau.

    Poor picture!

    This building is within the vicinity of Jalan Dato' Hamzah's round-about. It was built in 1912 as the State's Secretariat building and is a fine example of colonial architecture
