Prior to 1856, Kasubi Hill was known as Nabulagala. Sometime after that date, Kabaka Muteesa I Mukaabya, having met misfortune at Banda Hill, where he had built his first palace, relocated to Nabulagala. He renamed the hill Kasubi, after the ancestral village of his mother, located in then Kyaggwe County; what today is known as Mukono District. Today, Buganda traditionalists refer to the place interchangeably as Kasubi or Nabulagala or Kasubi-Nabulagala.
After his death in 1884, Kabaka Muteesa I was buried at Kasubi, the first Kabaka to be buried there. Since then, Kasubi has become the official royal burial site of the Buganda monarchy. The Kasubi Royal Tombs are recognised as a World Heritage Site and is of very high significance in the culture of the Baganda.
Kasubi Hill is a royal cultural site of the Kingdom of Buganda, one of the constitutional traditional monarchies in 21st century Uganda.
