Grandeur, majesty, myth were the flavours of the Grand Durbar in Argungu, organized by Argungu Emirate Council.

Durbar involves about 500 horses, 120 camels, 1760 men and women dressed in traditional indigenous attires with resplendent colours and adornments that accentuated the rich culture of Argungu.

Kings and Guards, Comedians and Commanders, Immams and Priests took part side by side.




Indigenous practices such as goldsmithing, farming, fishing, hunting, traditional religion and dancing were put on show.


People carried the tools of their various occupations and displayed how they ply their trade.


Songs and dances were part of the procession…



The Emir of Argungu, Samaila Mera, also led a special group of horsemen in a rich and beautiful display.
