Encyclopedia Article for seremban

Seremban

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
