The home of the Sultan of Sokoto, regarded as one of the eminent spiritual leaders for Nigeria's Muslim communities, is to be found in the far North West of the country. A proud and orderly town, Sokoto has a fascinating history that you will enjoy discovering.
Numerous sites of interest include the Sultan’s Palace, Shehu Mosque and Bello Mosque on Sultan Bello Road. You should also visit the Waziri Junaidu History and Culture Museum on Alli Akilu Road, with particular emphasis on the Colonial Era Room – this contains fascinating and sometimes amusing artefacts, including a throne given to the Sultan by Queen Elizabeth.
