  Kasubi Tombs
by TinyTuck

Burial place of 4 of the Kabakas (kings) of Buganda.
You enter through a small strow gate which is being guarded by men dressed in yellow garments, who are ancestors of the original guards - they have to stay at their side of the gate where they also live (in little "strow holes"), and can't cross to the other side which belongs to a different family - if I understood that right!
When you have passed the gate you have to pay a small entry fee and maybe get a guide who tells you about the history.
The actual site is a traditional circular house (see picture). There are a bunch of smaller circular houses built around it which belong to the Kabaka's widdows (or their daughter or granddaughter...) who still have the honor to care for this site...
With a guide we took your shoes off to enter the actual site...
