What To Expect
The town of Miles, located in the Highlands, is the crossroads of major roads and all the domestic Malagasy airlines. With its site, its avenues, its craft centers, museums, churches, royal palaces, its famous market and its zoological and botanical park, the capital of Madagascar is the tourist destination that should not be missed.
Situated 22 km from Tana, Ambohimanga is the cradle of the Merina dynasty, the Mecca of the Merina Kingdom and the starting point for the unification of Imerina. This ancient royal city was reputed to be a sacred city where no foreigner could enter.
There's a lot to admire in this place. From the entrance of the village, the old stone gate-shaped disc in the chamber, the royal box of Andrianampoinimerina, the summer palace of the queens, the horse park and sacred ponds. The enclosure is surrounded by a wall consisting mainly of egg whites in place of cement. The door to the east has "Ambatomitsangana" inscribed on it, and is actually a large stone disc 4m in diameter rolled closed every night and open every morning by dozens of men.
