Iyara wall: Iyara in the Yoruba language means room. This is a large wall of two vertical mountains measuring about 18 feet in height and 40 feet in length with a space of 7 feet apart which serves as a natural passage in and out of the community. It served as the city gate and it is managed by the city guards. And on the top right side of the hill is the station for the snippers back in the days.

Olorogun Meji: These are two large potholes with water formed inside the rock. It is =believed to have been formed by two rival wives. The tale behind it is they had a disagreement and the two of them turned to the two narrow pools of water.


Iho Eja: This can be translated to mean hole of fish, it is an opening on the rock with water that looks like the shape of a fish. The water is used mainly for laundry purposes.

Hmmm. Nice site but bros Op you get mind o.

I won't go to such a place at this time of Nigeria. No, no way!

When I was in Jos, I would go on mountain hike with my friends, it was fun and interesting. In fact, it's was of my favorite adventures but I would let it go till we recover our country or will rather do that while on visit to other countries.

Thank you!
