Kwiambana Forest Reserve Description

About Kwiambana Forest Reserve

 Kwiambana Forest Reserve was submitted the site to UNESCO as a potential World Heritage Center in November 1995 by the Nigerian government. The Kwiambana ruins were built on and around a granite inselberg with two peaks. They were protected by a ditch and a bank between five and seven meters high, topped by a rubble wall. In areas where the wall passes over bare rock, it is built of mud block with loopholes. Around the hillside there are some low free-stone walls. Within the enclosed area are several well-preserved mud structures, and several level sites where buildings may once have stood.The walls were constructed of natural coursed rubble, with alternating layers of stone and subsoil, and have resisted erosion.

Kwiambana Forest Reserve is located in Zamfara, Nigeria.
