Buganda Kingdom

One of the important cultural heritage sites in Kampala city, Bulange is the parliamentary building of Buganda Kingdom.

Bulange was constructed between 1953 to 1958 just opposite the Kabaka’s palace. The two are linked by a royal mile walk which mimics the Edinburg in England. Better walked than driven, at the royal mile you can see monuments that represent totems. See how cultures relate to nature as most of the totems are plants and animals such as lion, leopard, hippo, elephant and colobus monkey.
