It was difficult for me to establish a Sennar thread. I am just anticipating the images since I been very curious for some time. All I had ever seen from this city is the local dam. It was the capital of the Funj Sultanate too.

Oh, I didn't know that, thanks for that bit of info.

This is my first time seeing images of this city, nice to see some ruins are left over as well. Speaking of the Finj of Sinja Sultanate, how far did it's territory expand ? The Funj migrated north into the Sinja area correct, during the 1400-1500's, which area were they originally located prior to Sinja ? Also, this particular area was part of Alodia also ?

Sorry, you should understand I am a curious guy.

The funj originated from around the sudd in southern Sudan.
in the 15th century the funj moved northwards to flee fighting with their rivals the shiluk and lead by Amara dunqus conquered the southern regions of Abdallah jammas(the gatherers) Kingdom founding the sultunate of sennar. The funj where a minority in sennar and constituted the upper class of society over time they adopted the religion of the region(islam) and intermixed with the population.

Thanks for the info. Well, I will say that it's obvious and evident that I have genuine interest with the Sudan.

Have you been to Sinja, kitayabi ? Which Sudanese cities have you been too, if you don't mind me asking, kind sir.
