Religious

Ugandans are among the populations in the world that enjoy complete freedom of worship. The 1995 Constitution of Uganda grants the right to worship to the citizens. The religions are registered with the government though those which are thought to be cults are limited.

Kampala City forms headquarters for every religion in Uganda thus sheltering the prime buildings of worship for these religions. Ranging from the Rubaga Cathedral which is the headquarter for the Roman Catholic Church in Uganda to Namirembe Cathedral which is the head of protestant faith in Uganda, Gadhafi National Mosque which is the headquarters for the Islamic faith in Uganda, the Baha’i Temple which is the Center of the Baha’i followers in Uganda and on the African continent not forgetting a range of orthodox and born again churches all over Kampala.
Rubaga Cathedral

Besides the cathedrals, there are other sites of great religions significance with in Kampala such as the Namugongo Martyrs Shrine where the Uganda Martyrs are noted to have been burnt alive because of converting to Christianity.

One can explore these religious sites and centers on any day though attending with the people as they pray and you encounter the experience without any aim of disrupting the prayer session.
