The sword was an interesting place. We were allowed to try to pull the sword out. We decided not to try because we just want to enjoy our retirement.

Truly inspirational, the site guide offered an excellent overview of Asante royalty and history, as well as current practices. To get a real understanding of the Asante I would recommend going to the Prempeh II Museum also. They complement each other quite well.

I don't know but the guy behind the desk was rude. Anyways that's not why I was there.
So this historical landmark is just amazing to visit because you get to know about how the sword got stuck in the ground

Quite a historic site in the formation of the asante kingdom. Not a big place but worth seeing as this is the site where asante kingdom came into existance

The site it self is small. The story of how the sword was placed there is amazing. The energy here is very strong. Grab a book or two to learn more. Small but very informative exhibit

Not very big place, really only takes 10 min tops but inexpensive (5 cedi for foreign adults as of 2/2019) and worth a quick tour. It has the sword that Okomfo Anokye placed in the ground ~400 years ago to unify the Asante empire. It has the sword, some pictures, and replicas of the famous gold stool. The guides there were very attentive and helpful

We very much enjoyed the short visit and 'lecture' here. Fascinating place and story and helps put the local culture in context.

Found on the grounds of a large public hospital. This is an important cultural site for the Ashanti people. The sword had been stuck in the ground for over 300 years - held in place by spirits. No one, including Mohamed Ali, has been able to dislodge it. It was sometimes difficult to understand the guide due to his this thick accent. The tour lasted about 15 minutes.
