Lokori Standing Stones & Rock Art

In Lokori, not too far from the banks of Kerio river, there is one of Turkana’s most impressive archaeological sites, an ensemble of numerous circles of standing stones and two hills bearing mysterious rock art engravings. The local people will insist that the standing stone slabs once have been dancers turned into rocks by a wizard, similar to the stories you might have heard at the Namorutunga site near Kalokol. But again, archaeologists suspect other origins. Whether a graveyard or a site with another purpose – it surely must have been a place of important rituals. When you come to Lokori, catch up with the spirit of the place, imagine to be Indiana Jones and try to figure out the meaning of the many enigmatic rock art symbols on the nearby hills.
