Paga is a town in the border of Ghana and Burkina Faso which is known for their sacred crocodile ponds, where most visitors can touch live crocodiles, the population of Paga is 108 (in 2013), and is multilingual, speaking their native language Kasem and English among other languages

History[edit]

According to legend,Paga was founded c.1400 by a young man called Naveh, who was saved by a crocodile while on a hunting expedition. He then left his village and settled in the place which is now Paga. The founder of the town, Naveh, when searching for a desirable place to settle, exclaimed 'Ayipaga' which means 'My eye is fixed on this land'. The place came to be called by that name, which in due course was shortened to 'Paga'.
