On the 20th of June 2019, I visited a place called “Sobi Hill”. The trip was initiated by a friend “Yusuf” and we went in a group of 12, i really can’t remember the total.
Sobi Hill is one of the interesting places in Kwara State, It is notable as a place to enjoy a great view of the city of Ilorin.
The hills derives its name from the town of Sobi. Sobi hills is 394 meters above sea level. At the highest top of Sobi Hills their is a magnificent view of Ilorin as a whole. Its lush green vegetation and spectacular landscape makes it a premium destination in Ilorin. There are different points from which water gushes from the Hill
Their is a small building on the highest level of the rock called “House on the Rock” it is said that nobody knows how it got there people use it as place of worship
Aside from the “House on the Rock” a lot of people come to the rock to pray, as it is believed that payers are quickly answered in a place like that. Some stayed for weeks, months on the hill praying fervently, their are several place of worship on the which are lead by pastors/cleric . One of the special thing about the Hill is that Muslim/Christians worship without any grudges.
