Morija, Lesotho

Morija is the perfect destination to get a taste of Basotho heritage and unique way of life, and discover Basotho cultural assets in a friendly and relaxed manner. Morija is known for its historical significance. Founded in 1833 as the first French Protestant mission and named after the biblical Mt Moriah, Morija is regarded as the cultural centre of Lesotho. It was given the name Selibeng Sa Thuto – which translates as “The Well-spring of Learning” – and certainly constitutes an inspiring source for anyone eager to discover Basotho heritage, culture and history.

Morija is a home to Lesotho’s pioneer museum, Morija Museum and Archives, which has an impressive collection covering Lesotho’s cultural and natural heritage, past and present.
