There are not many places like Kajuru Castle in Nigeria.

As a matter of fact, it is okay to say that the castle is one of a kind.

Nobody sees the Kajuru Castle for the first time and believes that it was built in this era. It is usually assumed to be a relic; that is an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical interest.

But that is not the case.

Located at about 45 kilometres from Kaduna in Kajuru village, Kaduna state, Kajuri Castle was built in 1989 by a German expatriate who lived in Kaduna at the time.

The castle which is an epitome of architectural master-piece is stylishly structured in a medieval way that makes it a sorts of wonder to tourists.

Enthroned on a mountain ridge,  the castle which is fashioned with a European look and would pass for an ancient monument, usually evoke a strange sight to first-timer.

At first, you would think that your mind is playing a prank on you. But the closer you get, the more overwhelmed you become.

Overwhelmed by its magnificence... Overwhelmed by its splendour.

In the castle, there are bedrooms looking like dungeons and several towers with fine scalloped walls.

There is also a central building with authentic knights’ hall and a master suite (landlord’s residence) as well as a dragon tower that is believed to be well guarded by the resort’s “extinct dragons”.

Inside the living room are armours and different artifacts relating to Germany. A shelf of books in German also hangs waiting to be perused for a few seconds before they are dropped back.

The castle also has a one of a kind swimming pool. It is a magnificent large stainless steel swimming pool that tourists can enjoy upon their visitation.

Another interesting view for tourists are the crocodiles in the moat that seem to be protecting the castle gates. They are alive and ever-present for visitors to see.

There are other features in Kajuru Castle that distinguish it from other tourist sites in Nigeria. Features that only experience can explain.

However, it suffice to say that Kajuru Castle is not only a perfect location to get away from the noise and hassles of a city, it can also serve as a bridge that mentally connects the past and the present.
