Sori & Karungu towns

Karungu village, which sits on a bluff overlooking Karungu Bay, was intended to become a thriving port. In the late 1800s, a stone pier and a customs house were built, but the project failed due to endemic malaria. Sori, a neighboring village, soon overtook Karungu as the market town. Nonetheless, Karungu had already given the bay and administrative division their names. In 2001 the former Government Rest House in Sori was declared a national monument under the Antiquities and Monuments Act. Both towns are significant to the history & heritage of Kenya
