Shrines

Due to Keta’s rich heritage, there is a great number of shrines in the district, and visitors are especially welcome to visit Mami Rasta at her shrine in Anyanui.

Madame Mamishie Rasta is said to have been called and taken by a wise man who brought her to a house under the river where she stayed for three years and was taught everything aout spiritual healing.

She can ask the gods from what sickness a person is suffering and what king of treatment she shall impose. The gods are represented by three crocodiles living in her shrine, which tourists are invited to offer a live chicken to as a means to spiritually cleanse themselves. In addition, tourists are encouraged to take part in the spiritual drumming sessions that take place every Friday around 3pm.
