Jumba La Mtwana


Situated just under 20 kilometers from Mombasa Island, one kilometer north of the mouth of Mtwapa Creek, off Malindi Road, the ruins are all that remains of a small, picturesque Swahili coastal town sitting on about 12 acres of baobab forest with a frontage to a desolate beach.

 

 


Key Features

Jumba la Mtwana means “House of Slaves “in Swahili. When touring the site you can see the beautiful remains of the great Mosque, three smaller mosques with Mihrabs facing Mecca, tombs and houses such as House of the Cylinder, House of the Kitchen and House of Many Pools.
