History and etymology[edit] Tampin
Tampin
gets its name from the container or pouch weaved from the pandanus fronds. The container was used to store condiments such as the kelamai or dodol and the shrimp paste belacan. The district of Tampin
Tampin
is also called Luak Tampin
Tampin
as the word luak is the local term for district. Tampin
Tampin
was originally governed by the Rembau District
Rembau District
administration. After the Naning War in 1832 Raja Ali declared himself the ruler of Seri Menanti
Seri Menanti
and his son-in-law, Syed Shaaban, as the ruler of Rembau. This enraged other rulers of Negeri Sembilan
Negeri Sembilan
as they had no right to the posts. In 1834 a civil war ensued, which resulted in Raja Ali and Syed Shaaban retreating to Tampin
Tampin
and the area from Mount Tampin
Tampin
to Putus Hill being removed from Rembau.[4]This area consisting of the provinces Repah, Keru, Tebong and Tampin
Tampin
Tengah formed the district known as Tampin. Syed Shaaban became the first ruler of Tampin
Tampin
and proclaimed himself the title Tunku Besar Tampin. The district is one of the original nine states collectively known as Negeri Sembilan, which means "Nine States" in Malay. On 11 March 1889, the Governor of the Straits Settlements, Sir Cecil Smith, held a meeting with the rulers of Jelebu, Sungai Ujong, Rembau, Seri Menanti
Seri Menanti
and Tampin. The purpose of this meeting was to combine the districts to better manage them under British rule. Tampin, Rembau and Seri Menanti
Seri Menanti
agreed to the proposal and were united as the Seri Menanti Confederation. The newly formed confederation accepted Martin Lister as its first British Resident.[5] After the independence of Malaya in 1957, Negeri Sembilan
Negeri Sembilan
and its districts started forming local administrative councils. Formerly known as the Tampin
Tampin
Town Board, the Tampin District
Tampin District
Council was established on July 1, 1980 as a result from a restructure of the state via the Local Government Act of 1976. Government[edit]

Tampin
is served by the West Malaysian railways system. In fact, Gemas

is in Pulau Sebang, which is on the Malaccan side, about 1 kilometer from the town centre. Furthermore, since Malacca

but it was dismantled by the Japanese during the war for the construction of the infamous Burmese Death Railway. References[edit]
