It is a planned city, designed as a new national capital city to replace Lagos, and was built mainly in the 1980s,[5] replacing the country's most populous city of Lagos as the capital on 12 December 1991.[6] Abuja's geography is defined by Aso Rock, a 400-metre (1,300 ft) monolith left by water erosion. The Presidential Complex, National Assembly,[7] Supreme Court and much of the city extend to the south of the rock. Zuma Rock, a 792-metre (2,598 ft) monolith, lies just north of the city on the expressway to Kaduna.
