Contest #551 – Royal Kasubi Tombs, Kampala, Uganda

Buganda, the region of Uganda that includes Kampala, was until 1962, a separate kingdom. The last 4 kings of Buganda are buried here.

Until 2010, it looked like this:

During the night of May 16, 2010, the structure, which consisted of wooden poles, reed wattle and daub, thatch and palm fronds, was destroyed by a suspicious fire.

The Ugandan government, various NGOs, and private donations are working to rebuild the tombs.
