Wanar is an area located in the Kaolack Region of Senegal. It is famous for its ancient stone circles and lyre-stones which considered to be an important part of The Senegambian stone circles which are divided into four large sites: Sine Ngayene and Wanar in Senegal, and Wassu and Kerbatch in the Central River Region in Gambia.
