Ancient spiritual site still in use today
There are also impressive historic sites of the more recent past, such as the Namorutunga standing stones near Kalokol, an ancient site from about 2,000 years ago that is still revered as an important ceremonial site by the local Turkana people today. In southern Turkana, the Lokori Standing Stones mark one of the most impressive prehistoric remnants in the County. An ensemble of standing stones circles as well as mysterious rock art engravings mark a location of great importance to our ancestors. There are uncounted rock art sites spread out all over Turkana Land. Significant reminders of Kenya‘s colonial past are preserved by museum sites in Lodwar and Lokitaung.
Although from bygone ages, the Namorutunga Standing Stones near Kalokol are still regarded as a sacred site by the Turkana people today.
