Masjid Negeri Sembilan


The nine pillars of this 1960s-built state mosque represent the nine original states of Negeri Sembilan. It's worth a look for its peaked roof, which borrows elements of modern design and traditional Minangkabau architecture, particularly if you pass at night when the mosque is illuminated.

Only Muslims may enter.
