Religious Sites and Sacred Spaces

Many prominent religious sites, sacred grounds, and places of worship abound in Kisumu. Notable among such hallowed grounds are revered traditional African sites such as Kit Mikayi, located only a few miles from Kisumu, and new religious spaces that have emerged with the arrival of immigrants from the Middle East and the Asian sub-continent in Kisumu. These hallowed places attract thousands of religious devotees and committed faithfuls looking to make contacts with the ancestors, celebrate important religious occasions, offer sacrifices, or simply to affirm commitment to their various and varied religious beliefs. These sacred religious rendezvous are often marked by great celebrations, and, at other times, by clashes and conflicts.
