Although it is a sleepy village near Kilifi Town, Mnarani harbours a rich historical site — the Mnarani Ruins. It is a beauty and a great place to visit. The ruins overlook Kilifi Creek from the southern side, 200 metres from the Mombasa-Malindi highway. The thick baobab trees, two remnants of mosques and a number of tombs at the Mnarani Ruins in Kilifi are a favourite attraction. In fact, hundreds of people around the world travel to this site, a place where believers pray and offer sacrifices to God. The cool breeze blowing from the Indian Ocean and the scenic, peaceful, beautiful garden at Mnarani ruins, a Swahili settlement dating back to the 13th century, makes it the perfect place to relax, meditate or pray. Some of the massive baobab trees here are said to be about 800 years old.
