Title: Ngagu  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Pemba Island
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Ngagu is a village on the Zanzibari island of Pemba. It is located at the end of a narrow peninsula known as Ras Mkumbuu, which lies on the west coast immediately to the north of Chake-Chake Bay. The town is located close to the Quanbalu Ruins. Possibly dating from as early as the eighth century, these are the remains of a major trading centre which may have been Africa's oldest Muslim town.
