Discover Seremban, Negeri Sembilan is a travel guide to help people get to know Seremban and prepare their trip there. Seremban is the state capital of Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. It has a population of about 420,000 people, and is the 19th largest town in Malaysia.
Seremban was established around 1870, when tin was discovered in nearby Rasah. As such, it is a pretty young town compared to Malacca, Muar or Penang. The town is located on the upper reaches (hulu) of Sungai Linggi, which was used to ferry tin. In the beginning, the town was known as Sungai Ujong (also written Sungai Ujung, Seng Hyang Ujung, Saing Ujung and Semujung)1.
With prosperity from tin came rivalry between different faction, Dato' Kelana on the one side and Dato' Shahbandar on the other. This gave the British an excuse to intervene in the administration of the state.
