Looking for a place that is filled with nature and reminds you of your roots ? Osun State is a city rich in culture and nature -friendly . Perfect to visit during the holiday , this is one place you want to visit with your family and have the fun of a lifetime .
Here are some places you do not want to miss :
Ile - Ife
For the Yorubas, mythology is not complete without the mention of Ile -Ife. It is in this ancient city that Oduduwa ( the first king of Ife and brother to Obatala ) landed on earth from heaven with his creation items . It is also home to the palm nut tree which has become a representation of the historic city and the Yoruba race .
National Museum, Ife
Established in Ile- Ife in 1948, this is the perfect place to get in touch with Ife and other ethnographic antiquities including bracelets and rings from the 10 -11 th century CE and the historic Ibeji ( twin ) figures .

Erin - Ijesha Waterfalls
Also known as Olumirin waterfalls , this place is believed to be a spiritual source of purification . The best part is, it gives off an impression of a seven - part waterfall .

Oduduwa Groove and Shrine
Here, you get the opportunity to see a carved image of Oduduwa , the progenitor of the Yoruba race , holding his staff . It is also here that he is buried. Interestingly , there is a naturally carved map of Africa .

Ooni Of Ife Palace
Built in 1937, although it has been given a facelift , the palace still carries the aura of the revered king of Ife , Oba Adeyeye Ogunnusi .
