Created on May 27, 1967 from part of the Northern Region, Kano state borders Katsina State to the north-west, Jigawa State to the north-east, and Bauchi and Kaduna states to the south. Kano State is the second largest industrial center in Nigeria and the largest in Northern Nigeria with textile, tanning, footwear, cosmetics, plastics, enamelware, pharmaceuticals, ceramics, furniture and other industries. Others include agricultural implements, soft drinks, food and beverages, dairy products, vegetable oil, animal feeds etc. Kano first became known to the outside world after the visit of Leo Africanus in A.D. 1513. Tradition has it that the earliest settlers found in the area were the Abagayawa whose ancestor called Kano was said to have migrated from Gaya in the vicinity of Kano town in search of iron-stone and charcoal. The small settlemennt evolved some sort of patrilineal organisational struccture at the apex of which was a man called Barbushe - a hunter, a priest, an able leader and a man of ennormous stature. Tradition credits him with so much prowess and strength he was, according to oral tradition, able to kill an elephant with a stick and carry it on his back. Barbushe was the high priest of the supreme deity, Tsumburbura, around whose worship this small and peaceful community was built. The shrine of this deity was sited at a tree on the Dala Hill. #history #ancient #ancientcity #city #cityscape #landscape #nikon #kano #nikon #nikon_photography #cityphotography #dslr #picoftheday #instapic #instagood #instadaily #arewa #nigerianphotographer
