Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia
STATES OF INTERESTS
Negeri Sembilan, one of the 13 states that constitutes Malaysia, lies on the western coast of Peninsular Malaysia, just south of Kuala Lumpurand borders Selangor on the north, Pahang in the east, and Malacca and Johor to the south. The name is believed to derive from the nine districts or negara (now known as luak) settled by the Minangkabau, a people originally from West Sumatra (in present-day Indonesia). Minangkabau features are still visible today in traditional architecture and the dialect of Malay spoken. Unlike the hereditary monarchs of the other royal Malay states, the ruler of Negeri Sembilan is known as Yang di-Pertuan Besar instead of Sultan. The election of the Ruler is also unique. He is selected by the council of Undangs who lead the four biggest districts of Sungai Ujong, Jelebu,Johol, and Rembau, making it one of the more democratic monarchies. The capital of Negeri Sembilan is Seremban. The royal capital is Seri Menanti in the district of Kuala Pilah. Other important towns are Port Dicksonand Nilai.
State Legislative Assembly Building
The brown eight-points roof, reflecting the curve of buffalo horns is similar to the roof of the Pagarruyung Palace in Sumatera, while the off-white marble walls, a pastel shade of the brown roof, gives an impression of lightly varnished wood.
Located within the Wisma Negeri Complex, its immediate is the Wisma Negeri building which houses the offices of the Chief Minister, State Secretary and other state and federal agencies and departments. With its exceptional shape and architecture, it is very much in contrast with other buildings around it, further enhancing its uniqueness.
This building is the official venue for the weekly meeting of the Negeri Sembilan State Assembly EXCO members, as well as other official meetings and functions. For example, the opening ceremony of the State Legislative Assembly Sitting is an elaborately colourful affair. With the presence of the Yang di-Pertuan Besar, Tuanku Ampuan, Dato' Undang Yang Empat and Tunku Besar Tampin, the ceremony is a portrayal of nobility in all its grandeur.
