In other news, the Larabanga stone has gained popularity in Ghana as one of the mysterious objects with which various beliefs are associated.

Stories about the stone were first recorded in the 1950’s when British authorities tried to remove it from the path of a road about to be built, only for it to return to the exact spot the next day.

The road contractors were only informed about the mystical powers of the stone after their third attempt on the third day.

They, therefore, had no choice but to change the direction of the road.

Till today, the stone remains at the exact position, which is at Larabanga, a town located 6km southwest of the Mole National Park and close to the Larabanga Mosque, Ghana’s oldest mosque.

It is also 21km away from Damongo, which is the capital of the West Gonja District of the region.

The elders of the town, per a report by, also refer to the stone as the Mystic Stone or the Wish Stone.
