The Tombs of Kanyange Nnamasole house the body of Nnamasole Kanyange, the mother of Ssekabaka Suuna II who is buried at the Wamala Tombs. They are located on a hillside looking across a valley to Suuna II’s Wamala Tombs. The same Kanyange Nnamasole Tombs also house the bodies of other subsequent Nnamasoles (Nnamasole is the mother of a Kabaka).
The tombs are an important place for rituals and ceremonies, and contain a special sacred drum used to summon Suuna II’s spirit. A historical walk to the impressive Wamala tombs retraces the steps that Kanyange and Suuna followed to visit each other.
