Komfo Anokye Sword

The ‘unmovable’ Sword of the OKomfo Anokye remains in the grounds of the OKomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, where he pushed it into the ground, almost 300yrs ago. It is believed the OKomfo pronounced that no one would be able to remove the sword, and so it has remained in spite of attempts. The sword marks the spot where the Golden stool initially descended from the sky and legend has it that the state would collaps should it ever be pulled out of the ground.
