This rare architecture is located in Kafin Madaki village of Ganjuwa Local Government Area. It remains one of the rare architectural legacies of late Muhammed Durugu, a local genius popularly referred to as Babban Gwani. This same man who designed many of the palaces of Emirs in Northern Nigeria was said to have been killed by the Emir of Zazzau after building his palace for fear that he might build a better one elsewhere.



The tomb of the first Prime Minister of Nigeria Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa is situated in Bauchi town and declared a national monument

The Old City Walls were purposely built to provide security and protection against external attacks or invasions in the early historical period of warfare.




According to history, these stone heaps were gathered by the people of Kwadon Kayo to prevent invasion by the army of Emir of Bauchi Malam Yakubu I, when he launched war in the settlement.
