Last 2 weekends I went to Seremban and had the opportunity to shoot around Seremban town. However I paticularly loved the old shophouses which some were more than 100 years old. Some shophouses’ facade were given a new coat of paint and refurbished but there were quite a number of them left to rot. Seremban used to be one of the important administrative towns during the British colonial days perhaps because of its close distance to Kuala Lumpur and Negeri Sembilan being one of the federated Malay states.
Unfortunately nowadays Seremban seems to develop more slowly than other towns in Peninsular Malaysia even though its tourism industry is thriving especially in Port Dickson which is considered the most popular beach in Malaysia.
I reserve my comment on its slow development and what I want to show you are the photographs of its beautiful and classic facade belonging to shophouses in Seremban. I appeal to the state government that something be done to well preserve the beautiful and intricate facade of these shophouses as they are the invaluable heritage from the yesteryears just like what the Singaporean government has done to its classic shophouses built during the British colonial era.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. Comments and criticism are welcome in open arms 🙂
