Do you know the Ghanaian culture is depleting day by day. The typical Ghanaian youth do not care about the true nature of where they come from and where they belong. Sometimes in as much as we think God is first, we also need to think about our traditional culture. Traditional beliefs still play key roles in modern-day Ghana.
Touring the traditional shrines falls under the cultural trips. The traditional shrines in Ashanti are the final physical remains of the great Ashanti civilization.
The shine is one of the first shrines in Ghana which were built in the 18th and 19th Century. Visiting these traditional shrines gives you a chance of learning more about the furtive side of the Ashanti tradition. Although some shrines still have priests, but visitors are allowed to enter.
The Besease Shrine is also known as the Yaw Tano Shrine, and it was constructed in the 19th Century. It is among Ghana’s important tourists’ sites. According to the history, a native of “Besease gave birth to a mysterious object rather than a normal human being.” The object signified a powerful god called Tano. Yaa Kyaa was ordained as the priestess of this god. Tano Yaw is viewed as a protecting god to its people during war.
