As part of the work at The Nubuke Foundation Centre for Clay and Textiles in WA, we visited eleven (11) sites in Nadowli, 3 in Nandom, and 6 in Wa. We documented them to create a map of these sites as Tourist destinations and for developing other multimedia features based on the history and culture of these towns.

The sites we visited are:

Sankana Caves
Ombo Mountains
The Falantan Anthills
Duong Bone Setting Clinic
Paala Golo Pie
George Zangnaah The Gure Porcupine Sanctuary

The Royal Mausoleum
St. Theresa’s Minor Basilica
Babile Market
The Pakor Tang
Wa Naa's Palace
George E. Ferguson Tomb
Nakore Mosque
Weichau Community Hippo Sanctuary
Wa Market

Old Dondoli Mosque

Dondoli is a town in the Wala state. Typical of the Sudanese type of mud mosques, the Dondoli mosque has a flat roof and a rectangular shape with irregular shaped pinnacle buttresses and two-point towers (the minaret and the mihrab). The roof is made of timber logs. The minaret comprises a small prayer room with access to the rooftop. The whole structure is enforced with timber frames. Located in Dondoli, the structure depicts the rich heritage of the people. It further accentuates the deep Islamic influence on the region and culture of the Waala people. This 19th-century Dondoli mosque fell into disuse after a new one was built.
