Ile Nla was ” built in the early 18th century. It is used by the past monarchs as their town hall in which the Ooni meets with his people. Unlike others structures in the palace, the ile nla is sacred because of the mysteries surrounding it. Inside the structure are some sculptures which depicts the history of the Ooni and at the rear entrance are elephant tusks which symbolizes power that the Ooni has. At the back of the hall is where the past monarchs are buried, which gives the place the kind of solemnity it deserves. It is located inside the Ooni’s palace.”- IfeOye blog
