The Kasubi Tombs is a burial ground for four kabakas (kings of Buganda) that was first built in 1881 on the Kasubi hill in Kampala.
The tombs were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 but were unfortunately destroyed by fire on March 16, 2010.
To the people of the Buganda nation (the largest sub-national kingdom in present-day Uganda), the tombs are a symbol of a spiritual, political and social state of its people.
Despite the unfortunate incident, the site still gets regular visits while the main palace is being rebuilt.
