Here are photos from the famous Girmache Shrine. This is a traditional shrine in Zuru Local Government Area in Kebbi State where thousands of harmless crocodiles reside in a peace of water surrounded by thick trees.
According to reports, the Girmache Shrine is a place of worship, the local inhabitants visit this place and offer sacrifices to the gods of the shrine and present gifts to the crocodiles – some of them make special request to the shrine.
According to Jalaludeen Maradun who shared this, the Girmache shrine is also a bus stop for some “clean” politicians. The custodians of the Girmache Shrine are always in animal skin rugs – the only clothing approved by the gods.
