Iga Iduganran sits a few minutes walk from my house, It is the Palace of the traditional ruler of Lagos. The area was named Iga Idugaran by the Portuguese because it used to be a pepper farm before the seat of power was moved from Iddo to its present home in Lagos Island. It s just a few meters from the Lagoon and it has being renovated to serve a a tourist attraction. The Iga (Palace) is a place I love to visit because it holds a lot of historic stories for my immediate family. I will miss visiting when I eventually move out of Lagos Island

This place is a place to visit for someone interested in history and a journey back to pure colonial era. It is a reminder of traditions, culture and traditional institutions. Loom beyond the minimal comfort that may exist and embrace its symbolic representation of celebration of life and human heritage.

This is the seat of the paramount Oba of Eko (King of Lagos); the palace of a monarch. Impressive frontage and a tour of the palace is like going through the history books.
