Seremban was a typical Malayan town with double storey terra cotta tiled roof in Indo-Anglo-Chinese design with the shop on the ground floor and the family on the floor above.
At one time, because there was rent control after the World War II, many of these prewar buildings were kept by the owners as there was no financial incentive without the ability to chase out old tenants or increase the rental rate.
Today, as you go around Seremban you can see the interesting design of the five-foot way outside each building - like a connecting corridor and the window and door decorations.

Seremban Train Station with the clock tower and located at downtown Seremban is a typical major train station that was built when Malaysia was a British colony.
Today, there are fewer trains running as the 4 lane highway is a more popular transport mode with private cars, motorcycles or buses plying.
Still you can take a commuter from Kuala Lumpur to Seremban.
The architecture of the train station with woodenand terracotta tiled roof and semi-open waiting area that shield off the sun and the rain but not the sound of arriving and departing trains with potted flowering plants for deoration under the instruction of the station master.

Joggers will simply love the Seremban Lake Garden. With jogging tracks all around, this lake garden is not just your regular park. It has also been noted as one of the most picturesque gardens in Malaysia.

The Hindus, as you know, have deities for most purposes with a religion that goes back more than 6,000 years.
In Bukit Kepayang, Seremban, there's a lovely old temple perched atop a narrow ridge, only reachable by a 1 km long trudge up a very rough path.
Not recommended for those a little unfit or suffering from heart complaints, it's a 20 minute walk for the fit and a 40 minute walk for others.
There are two temples at the top of the climb.
The Virgin's Temple is supposed to be nearly 100 years old (the resident priest could not tell us exactly how old); contains the supposedly only "white" snake god and the only temple in Malaysia with as many as seven deities in the same altar.
The local Hindu girls go here to obtain guidance and blessings to become pregnant and to obtain a husband (preferably in reverse order).
The legend is that the temple has a very high success rate.!!
Walking shoes and a bottle of water essential.
Take a plastic bag and fill it with rubbish collected on the way up or down. You will be further blessed.

My two daughters from Australia insisted that i add this tip.
When they visited this bastion of Asian culture, it blew their minds.
DO NOT wear open shoes when you visit the Seremban "wet market" or "pasar besar.
It's called a wet market because the floors are frequently flushed with buckets of water and hoses and are therefore frequently 1/2 inch deep in water.
It is closed each Tuesday for weekly Council cleaning rituals.
This is where the locals buy their fish, chicken and other meats as well as their fresh vegetables, some fruit and flowers.
Not for the faint hearted or the fastidiously heigenic, they will slaughter your choice of chicken right there in front of you.
We and the locals think nothing of it but if you want FRESH, you can't get anything better.

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 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:
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.

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.

The Sri Bala Thandayuthapani Temple is one of the most noteable landmark in Seremban due to its fascinating features.
Located at Jalan Yam Tuan next to the Seremban Parade shopping mall, this Hindu temple features intricate designs and carvings in almost every corners -from its entrance and altar to its walls and roof. Painted in bright colors, this well maintained temple provide a striking contrast to other buildings in its vicinity.
Accross the street is the state mosque of Negeri Sembilan - proving religous tolerance is well alive here.

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.
