The circle of Islam around Table
Dotted around the Cape are a number of “Kramats” These are holy shrines and tombs of “saints and friends of Allah” many of whom were brought unwillingly to the Cape as slaves. Many of these shrines are found at the base of Table Mountain and are said to form a circle and it is believed that anyone living within this cirle is protected from natural disasters such as flood, fire or earthquake.
It is possible to visit these shrines on many of the hikes on Table Mountain. One of the most visited is the shrine between Lions Head and Signal Hill.
