Road Ring, Benin-city, otherwise referred to as Kings Square or Oba Ovoranmen Square, is located in the heart of the Edo state capital.

Ring Road was the place where the colonial masters used to hold court. It was used as a center for recruiting soldiers during the colonial era. It was there the late Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia was recruited into the military after he watched a military parade at the field.

Ring road, Benin city was rebuilt to its present status by Dr. Ogbemudia when he became military administrator. The field there now houses the Benin Musuem.

All roads leading to Benin City from the east, west, north or south terminated at the Ring Road.

Some of the roads were part of the nine ancient roads that led to Benin when it was capital of the ancient Benin Kingdom.

Right at the middle of the location is the Benin City National Museum. The Edo State Assembly is also located at Ring Road. The Palace of the Oba of Benin is just a stone throw from Ring Road.

Benin city is globally-recognized as a center of arts and culture, little wonder the state capital is adorned with beautiful works of arts.

See some of the artworks on display at Ring Road, Benin-City, Edo state.

Last week the OP was on his way to Benin from Lagos ,he captured all he saw. Since he got to Benin, this has been the 4th story about Benin. Please don't be an armchair journalist. 5th topics or more about a single city within a week is weak. Mix it with stories from other cities.

Breath taking, awesome... No other people or race, do bronze work and sculpture like the Edo people.

Our artworks can generate millions of dollars, from arts/culture tourism.

You are very ignorant, even the oba of Lagos stated clearly that Oduduwa is an offshoot of the Edo/Benin empire, not the other way round. You can search for the topic on nairaland yourself, and learn.

But guys, most of you who have never been to benin please do not hallucinate about touring or even planning to travel there. they is nothing to write home about in benin. apart from this nonsense ring road you are seeing they is nothing more there to see.

But to those who feel is been long they see thatched or mud house be my guest in fact remember to visit first second and third secular road.

Edo is a quasi Afonja state. Descendants of Oduduwa


Even one of your Obas(You have so many, I have lost count of how many they are) agreed that "IGIODUWA" ,a prince of the Bini(note this, Bini not Benin) Empire founded the Yoruba Kingdom. His name was corrupted to "ODUDUWA"


Get your facts right!!

Proud Bini (not Benin)

Proud Edo..
