Mukurwe Wa Nyagathanga shrine

Mukurwe Wa Nyagathanga shrine 1

According to legend, when Ngai (God) sent Gikuyu to the land he had chosen for him, he told the man that he would identify his new home by the Mukurwe tree and the twitter of nyagathanga birds. And sure enough, when Gikuyu climbed down  Kirinyaga mountain, Ngai’s abode, there in the garden was the huge tree, with the nyagathanga birds twittering their welcome. Gikuyu and his wife, Mumbi, raised 10 daughters, nine of whom they married off, and soon the population started growing.
