Nakayima Tree is situated on top of Mubende Hill 2 km from Mubende Town in Mubende District. Nakayima was a wife of ndhaura, the first muchwezi king of the empire of buyoro kitara. When the bachwezi disappeared and became re-newed through the bachwezi cult, the spirit of nakayima became her husband’s inter-mediary.

The site is a very active shrine and is usually visited throughout the year. Believers put buttress that forms the base of the tree to request for fertility, riches and the healing of sicknesses.
