At 725 m (2,379 ft) above the ground, Zuma Rock embodies an enduring mystery. The enormous black monolith stands north of the capital, and no one knows how it was created. Check it out on a 100-naira note, and then visit it to see its grandeur up close. The Gbagyi tribe used it as a means of defense against invasions of other tribes. See Zuma Rock and all Madalla has to offer by arranging your trip with our Madalla tour planner.
