The Uganda Martyrs Shrine is a must see when visiting Kampala. It's not that far from center city, but traffic can be a killer (no pun intended). Make sure to have a tour guide to give you the history and point out the various shrines...More

Amidst the pilgrims manifestation of deep faith and belief, it is difficult to countenace the real horrors that took place here so many years ago. The shrine is a fitting tribute and memorial to these fearless martyrs.
