    Somalia sits on the horn of Africa with the longest coastline on the continent’s mainland, while its
    capital city Mogadishu is known as the ‘white pearl’ of the Indian Ocean. In antiquity, Somalia is said
    to be “among the most probable locations of the fabled ancient Land of Punt;” in addition, it was an
    important commercial centre with ancient relations. Its long-distance trade by sea and camel caravan
    gave birth to a multi-cultural society with communities on the coast.

    Somalia’s rich and ancient cultural heritage and treasure has been overshadowed by years of conflict
