Bulange houses Buganda Kingdom’s administration and parliament. In the past, sessions used to be held under trees, before they moved to a grass-thatched building. Construction of Bulange began in 1955 when Ssekabaka Mutesa returned from exile in Scotland with a drawing of what he wanted it to look like; it was completed in 1958. It’s a good place to learn about the history and culture about Buganda. Note that ladies shouldn’t wear trousers when visiting.
