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

Pakor Tang

The Pakor Tang (Hill) is located in Zingmoupare in the Nandom municipality. Pakor Tang is home to the sacred gods of the Zingmuopare people. The hills were instrumental in defending them against slave raiders. To this end, they have a section of the hill they call Muol Nye Kono which means ‘peep and weep’. It is a part of the hill that people are forbidden from getting to. However, in extremely rare circumstances, such as matters of life and death, one may be permitted to go there and make a wish.
