Rubaga Cathedral Kampala Reviews
One of the Landmarks & Religious sites in Kampala, Uganda Jul 26, 2008
Rubaga Cathedral is a religious and sacred site for Roman Catholics in Uganda. It is among the top religious attractions in Uganda. Located on the Rubaga hill, one of Kampala’s 7 hills, the cathedral is also known as St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral. It is a magnificent structure located on the hill overlooking the city, and was constructed in the first half of the 21st century as a place of worship for Roman Catholics. The cathedral was run down in the years past, but was restored prior to the visit of John Paul II during his visit to Uganda.
The cemetery at the church has the remains of the first African Catholic Bishop and the first African Archbishop of Kampala Diocese, Joseph Kiwanuka. It is a significant religious site in Kampala and visited by thousands of tourists and locals each year
The Cathedral is also counted among Kampala’s Landmark buildings because of it’s magnificent construction. Highly recommended if you find yourself in Uganda.
