This is the old Sri Menanti Palace, my husband's family ancestral palace, the former Royal residence was contructed without nails and screws.

My husbands family line belongs to DYAM Tunaku Besar Burhanuddin born 1878 (my husband's grandfather). The title Duli Yang Amat Mulia Tunku Besar refers to the deputy of the ruler of Sri Menanti, Negri Sembilan and refers to the one who usually acts as regent during the rulers absence.

DYAM Tunku Besar Burhanuddin was the second son of the ruler DYMM Tuanku Antah of Negri Sembilan and was brought up in the serene and peaceful surroundings of the old palace at Sri Menanti.

The old Palace is a 5 storey high building made from wood from the forest in Negri Sembilan and designed by local craftsmen Tukang Kahar and Tukang Taib. The Palace was completed in 1905 with the main pillars reaching 21 meters high.

In 1926 the old palace was used for the homage ceremony attended by the British High Commissioner, Lawrence Guilemard.
