The Kasubi Tombs, just off Masiro Rd, were first built in 1881 and are worth a look for a dose of traditional culture. There are several huge traditional reed and bark cloth buildings of the kabakas of the Buganda people. The group of buildings contains the tombs of Muteesa I, his son Mwanga (Sir Daudi Chwa II) and his son Edward Muteesa II, father of the current kabaka, Ronald Mutebi II (known also by his Bugandan name, Muwenda). Edward Muteesa II died in London in 1969, three years after being deposed by Obote. The tombs are taken care of by the Ganda clans.

The Kasubi Tombs are open year-round, including holidays. Remove your shoes before entering the main building. You can get to the tombs by minibus, either from the old taxi park in the city centre (ask for Hoima Rd) or from the junction of Bombo and Makerere Hill Rds. The minibuses to get are the ones that terminate at the market at the junction of Hoima and Masiro Rds. The tombs are a few hundred metres walk up the hill from here and are signposted
