Kasubi Royal Tombs Tours

Occupying 74 acres (30 hectares) of hillside in Kampala district of Uganda are the UNESCO-listed Kasubi Royal Tombs, an important religious site for the Buganda Kingdom. Originally built in 1882 as a palace for Kind Mutesa I, the structure was converted to a royal burial ground two years later upon the death of the king. A departure from tradition, the next three rulers opted to be buried here instead of at their own palaces. 

These four main tombs lie within a central circular structure, known as Muzibu Azaala Mpanga, built primarily from wood, thatch reeds and clay. While much of the original building was destroyed by an arsonist in 2010, it has largely been restored, giving visitors a glimpse into the spirituality and identity of the Buganda royalty.
