Within the huge walls of the Great Emclosure is a convex conical tower of 10 M high a bit hidden under the trees at the south-eastern end od the enclosure. This tower is object of greatest speculation, because it is not clear what this apparently ceremonial structure represented.
Some speculate that it symbolized a granary, others see it as a phallic symbol or believe it was used in rainmaking ceremonies.
For more pictures of the great Enclosure and Great Zimbabwe have a look at the travelogue.
Directions: The ruins are 25 KM from Masvingo.
