Kasubi Tombs

Kasubi Royal tombs are of high significance to the Buganda kingdom. This huge thatch-roofed palace of the UNESCO World Heritage, was tragically destroyed in an arson attack in March 2010. Built in 1882 as the palace of King Mutesa I, it was converted into his tomb following his death two years later.

Subsequently, the next three Kabaka (kings) – Mwanga, Daudi Chwa II and Edward Mutesa II, broke with tradition and chose to be buried here instead of in their own palaces.
