This shaded platform housed the Oba, his wives and selected attendants during ceremonies such as the public celebration of the Oba's Igue, or festival to his head. At the left of the palace entry road, it overlooks the Ugha Ozolua, the large empty space in front of the palace where Oba Ozolua's courtyard once stood.
