Mbaraki Pillar

Mbaraki Pillar 1

Located west of the Likoni Ferry roundabout, Mbaraki Pillar continues to be a source of deep controversy among historians and archaeologists as to its purpose. Local folklore tells of an ancient Arab spirit that possesses powerful magical healing abilities which resides within its walls. There are those who believe this 300-year old pillar may have been the tomb of an important person. James Kirkman, the first curator of Fort Jesus, strongly believed it may have been the tomb of a Sheikh of the Changamwe people who lived in Mbaraki.
