Inscribed on the World Heritage List, Osun-Osogbo Sacred Grove represents the ancient--yet dying--tradition of establishing a sacred forest outside a settlement. Join an organized tour and walk around the peaceful nature, where over 400 species thrive, including endemic and medicinal. By the river, you can see a large number of statues and small shrines dedicated to the fertility deity Osun, believed by the Yoruba people to live in the grove. The inclusion of old and new figures establishes a connection between past and present. The locals believe the trees to have magical healing powers, and many of them come in order to get well or improve their chances of conceiving.

I come here when I need to get away from the world. As a mixed feeling of terrific and cozy. I advise you get bananas if you want to enjoy company of the monkeys there. If you a photographer, it's a great place to have a photo session or do a documentary.
The sacred Osun groove is a well preserved and well reserved world heritage site of more than 500years that was adopted by UNESCO. It is a natural habitat for friendly creatures like monkey etc. It is a good place to be.
