Omdurman was the capital at the time of the Mahdiya, and still is the most native in character of the Three Towns making up the capital. It has extended much in the last 50 years since Independence with new areas like Thawra, Hetana, Um Bedda and others.

Streets are still a rabbit's warren in the older parts, but there has been building going on too.
One of us went to University in Omdurman, so was very familiar with certain roads, but this may have changed too.
Now Omdurman has two bridges joining it to Khartoum,, and one linking it to Khartoum North..
