Mentakab is a town, a mukim and a state assembly constituency in Temerloh District, Pahang, Malaysia, originally known as Pasir Rawa. Mentakab was once considered by the State Government in the year 1901 to be the new centre of all administrative works in the state of Pahang. However, due to a problem of uneven land, Kuala Lipis was instead made the capital of the state, later replaced by Kuantan in 1955.LocationCountry: Malaysia State: Pahang Type: Town Latitude: 3.48333 Longitude: 102.35000 Latitude: (DMS) 3d 29m 0s Longitude: (DMS) 102d 21m 0sTransportRailMentakab has a railway station operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu.
