History+Tourism: Unbelievable Things You Never Knew About The Mysterious Riyom Rock In Jos+Beautiful Pictures

 

INTRODUCTION
Here are outstanding pictures of the spectacular Riyom Rock in Jos,
Plateau State in northcentral Nigeria. The Riyom Rock is one of the most
enchanting scenes in Nigeria and taking a look at the way these mighty
boulders are arranged on top of one another in that delicate position
for thousands, if not millions of years, one cannot but be awed by the
majestic wonders of nature.

The
rock formation is located in Riyom Town just 25 kilometres to the
southwest of Jos, the capital city. The Riyom Rock is located in Riyom
Local Government Area of the state and the area is predominantly
populated by Berom people. When viewed from some angles, the formation
resembles the map of Plateau State.
The formation is also popularly known as Three Rocks.

beautiful!
