Built to commemorate the famous explorer Mungo Park, this structure was the first government house in Nigeria. Security/Safety of Mungo Park House This is a very safe location. What To Bring Before heading to Mungo Park House, here are some helpful things to take along with you: A camera to capture and appreciate significant historic events Best Features Although built primarily for palm kernel business, it became the seat of the Southern Nigeria government. It has been used over the years by various governments - Western and local. It was used as an Orphanage, Women Development Centre, Water Board and now a monument for keeping relics and articrafts of the decades past. The sophistication of this pre-fabricated storey building lies in the fact that the materials consisted mainly of well-processed wood. The materials were cut to sizes and treated in Europe, and imported just to be coupled together in the country to form the weather-beaten structure. The house was erected with stout and cooked wooden palm carefully arranged vertically and horizontally, with the staircase using nuts and bolts to join the wooden palm together. Writer's Review A tour of Asaba's historic and cultural gems will be greatly incomplete without a stop here to see the second half of the power-house that created what later became Nigeria.

What To Bring Before heading to Bible Site, Araya, here are some helpful things to take along with you: Camera to capture the sights and take selfies with Best Features The story of this Bible site is one of intrigue and wonder. After early missionaries came to Araya Village, they received visions and dreams to expect an unknown miraculous gift. During those times, the locals carried their yield from their farms to the nearby creek for transportation. On a rainy day while two women were on this task, they found an open Bible on their yam which although the surrounding were wet, the Bible was dry. Shocked with this discovery, they carried it along and after deliberation with the village heads, took to the White missionaries. From there, the Bible was lost, assumingly in transit to England. Years later, it was decided to commemorate the exact spot of the Bible discovery site. If the Bible is still around as I strongly believe, it will one day come back to Araya. All that is left for us is to praise and glorify God’s name, in Araya-Mr. Osima
