Ho is a Town in southeast Ghana and is the capital of the Volta Region. It lies near Mount Adaklu and is home to a museum, a cathedral and a large prison. The language spoken is Ewe and English being the official Language of the country]. The city arose initially from a union of two villages namely, Banakoe(today Bankoe) and Hegbe(today Heve) A group of Bankoers left Bankoe to settle in Ahliha (today Hliha). Later on, Ahoe and Dome came to join the union to form todays HO. Suburbs such as Deme (originated from Taviepe, also in the Ho municipality) due to a historical conflict sought refuge in Ho. they were then given Land to settle and developed into a surburb which is now called Deme.Other suburbs which were independent villages are Sokode, Ziavi, Klepe,and Adaklu
The traditional festival of the people of Ho is the yam festival which is celebrated arond september.
Ho was a part of the German colony of Togoland until World War I when it was occupied by the British. Ho later became the capital of the League of Nations mandate of British Togoland until that entity's incorporation into the British Gold Coast colony, which subsequently became Ghana.
Unlike the capital of Ghana, Accra, Ho seems like a village that has swollen into a city. While in central parts the roads are paved, those roads outside are not.
Ho is noted for a lively and huge open market that attracts people from all over Ghana and Togo. There are numerous churches, including the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ho.
