Buganda Kings at Kasubi Ayda-Ayoubi

I visited the Kasubi Tombs on a field work project trip to Uganda September
to November 2011. The site was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List in
2001 based on criteria (i), (iii), (iv) and (vi). Management of the Toms of
Buganda Kings at Kasubi has been undertaken in a traditional management
system.

The structures are circular in plan and have dome-like shapes. The
thatching technique at the Kasubi tombs is quite unique and can hardly be
compared to another African or European thatching techniques.

Unfortunately the site was inscribed on UNESCO List of Danger in 2010 due
to a fire which caused severe damages and destructions.

Today, the site is still associated with the intangible values of belief,
spirituality, continuity and identity.
