Seremban [sʉr΄əm bän′]
city in SW Peninsular Malaysia, Malaysia: capital of Negri Sembilan: pop. 136,000

* * *

      town, West (Peninsular) Malaysia, on the Linggi River. It lies approximately 25 miles (40 km) inland from Port Dickson on the Strait of Malacca. The town originated as a tin-mining settlement in the 1840s. Rubber production is now Seremban's principal activity; tin is still mined, and paddy rice is grown in the well-drained valleys of the Main Range to the east. The Singapore–Kuala Lumpur road and railway system passes through the town, which is linked by a branch railway to Port Dickson. A road through a nearby mountain gap leads to Kuala Pilah and eastern Malaya.

      The Lake Gardens, a museum, and a teacher-training college are there. The museum was erected on the model of a Malay house (built without nails, like traditional Sumatran structures). In the foothills, about 25 miles (40 km) east, lies Seri Menanti, site of the palace of the sultan of Negeri Sembilan. A hot spring 12 miles (19 km) south is a popular resort. Pop. (1980) 132,911; (1991 prelim.) 182,584.
