  • Olumo Rock is a mountain  is located in the city of Abeokuta in south-western Nigeria. It is located in the city of Abeokuta, Ogun State and was normally used as a natural bunker during inter-tribal warfare in the 19th century. 

 

  • Its patron idolized  it in the Yoruba religion   as an Orisha .

 

  • The name Olumo is the combination of two words- “Olu” which means (God) and mo which means (moulded) the combination which is translated as God has ended our sufferings and trouble.

 

  • Olumo Rock is located in the city of Abeokuta, Ogun State. Historically, the rock was a natural fortress for the Egbas during inter-tribal warfare in the 19th century.

  •  It has a height of 137 metres above sea level. 

 

  • Abeokuta was originally inhabited by the Egbas, who the rock provided with shelter and gave a vantage point to monitor the enemy’s advance, leading to eventual triumph in war between them and the old Oyo Empire and the  people of Dahomey. 

 

  • The town of Abeokuta eventually grew as these new settlers spread out from this location.

 

  • Abeokuta is just about an hour’s drive from the bustling metropolitan city of Lagos, providing convenient access to an array of hotels, restaurants, clubs, casinos and various nightlife activities. 

 

  • New renovations completed in early 2006 upgraded the infrastructure of the site to include a new museum, restaurants, water fountain and the ancient Itoku market, where local artisans and traders enjoy haggling over prices just as much as the customers like to find a bargain. 

 

  • The market lies just outside the Olumo rock premises. It is the center of the indigenous Abeokuta industry of tie-and-dye, locally known as adire.
