Al-Khalifa House and Omdurman Battlefield
nov. 2020
I was in Khartoum and Omdurman over the past week. I did go into the Al Khalifa House. It took a bit of persistence. There is a sign that says that it is closed for maintenance. But, the guard eventually let me in and he walked around with me. There is a small-domed (Mosque-like) roof inside with crescent moon ornament that I was told was the original site of the l Mahdi tomb.

BTW, for those that are interested, you can view the entire Omdurman battlefield if you take a taxi or tuk-tuk (or walk about 5 miles as I ended up doing!) to the small town of Kerrari , just north of Omdurman. From the arrival point at the outskirts of the town, walk across the Nile bridge. Although the town has now covered over the center of the battlefield, and there is a military installation on Jebel Surghum, from the crest of the bridge, you will easily see the Jebel Surghum, the Kerrari Hills in the distance and the area of the camp established by Kitchener on the bank of the NIle. Good panoramic view.

Solo un lugar simbolico
nov. 2019 • Entre amis
El Madhi no está enterrado en esta tumba. Su cadaver fue desenterrado cuando Kichener entró en Jartin con sus tropas y profanado.
Se trata de un pequeño edificio sin mayor valor.
Visita prescindible, salvo pasión por el personaje.

Well maintained

Nice site to visit. Well maintained temple with locals worshipping outside. Locals played instruments and sang. No signage so difficult to know the significance of the site. Other TA reviewers have included good info. Worth a stop.

Anyone interested in British imperial history should visit
mars 2019 • En solo
If you were brought up on stories of Gordon of Khartoum, then a visit to the mausoleum of his nemesis is a must. The original tomb was destroyed by the British when Kitchener retook Khartoum, but it was reconstructed in the 20th century, and is still an important centre of pilgrimage for the Sudanese. If you are British, I think it is important to walk here with great respect, and reflect on the deeds done in the name of empire.

L'eroe delle " 4 feathers"
juin 2018 • En solo
Più volte a Karthoum ,ho potuto visitare anche all'inteno Il mausoleo del Mahdi 'Il Promesso', capo politico e spirituale che ha guidato la vittoriosa rivolta contro il dominio anglo-egiziano alla fine del XIX secolo e oggi eroe nazionale sudanese. L'edificio in sé è affascinante, ma molto modesto ed è sempre pieno di pellegrini mentre ogni venerdi prima del tramonto si radunano sul suo piazzale i dervisci per le loro rituali e folkloristice danze.Non contiene , come si può credere ,le spoglie del Mahdi che sono state profante sei mesi dopo la sua morte dagli Inglesi che ,dopo la battaglia di Omdurman distrussero la tomba e buttatono il corpo del Mahdi nel Nilo, pare si sia stato il nipote del generale Gordon o, secondo altre versioni bruciato nella caldaia dello steamer Bordein dopo averne portato in giro la testa infilzata su una picca. L'edificio, abbandonato durante l'epoca coloniale è stato completamente riedificato nel 1947 dopo la partenza degli inglesi , simile al precedente ma con la cupola in argento . Merita senz'altro la visita , specie il venerdi per capire l'anima del Sudan , ricordarsi che l'area che circonda il mausoleo è un cimitero, d'altronde è chiaramente visibile, vestiario adeguato, chiedere sempre per le foto.

Non è il Taj Mahal
janv. 2019 • Entre amis
Questo mausoleo è venerato come luogo di pellegrinaggio dai Sudanesi perché qui sono conservate alcune delle spoglie di un personaggio molto importante. All’interno, attraverso delle fessure di riescono a vedere alcuni sarcofagi.
Fuori, nel giardino, alcuni uomini suonano al nostro arrivo e dal ristorante vicino ci portano un piatto di riso per farcelo assaggiare

For Muslim pilgrims in Omdurman
déc. 2018 • Entre amis
This is important to Sudanese Muslims because it’s an alternative to Mecca as a place of pilgrimage. It’s stunning from the outside - less so inside.

It’s also small and there were just two people praying inside when we visited: a man and a woman.

There’s a green covered dais that probably contains Madhi’s tomb.

Tomb Mahdi
févr. 2018 • Entre amis
W Omdurmanie, dzielnicy Chartumu znajduje się grobowiec przywódcy powstania sudańskich derwiszów przeciwko wojskom egipskim i angielskim w latach 80-tych XIX wieku, Muhammada Ahmad Ibn Abd Allah. Tytuł „Mahdi” przybrał przed rozpoczęciem powstania (Mahdi – człowiek prowadzony przez Boga, mesjasz). W 1885r, Mahdi zmarł na tyfus i został pochowany w okazałym grobowcu w Omdurmanie. Jednak ciała Mahdiego w nim nie ma, gdyż po zdobyciu Omdurmanu przez połączone wojska egipsko-brytyjskie w 1896r, grobowiec został zburzony a ciało zbezczeszczone. Obecny budynek mauzoleum został wybudowany w 1947r, szczątki kopuły pierwszego grobu można zobaczyć w Muzeum Khalifa w Omdurmanie.

Memorial of a legendary rebel leader
janv. 2018 • En solo
More than a century after his death his memorial at the site of his tomb, is still a center of pilgrimage. His tomb was destroyed by the British in 1898, but later a modest cenotaph was reconstructed. At the moment it is under repair.

Muhammad Ahmad declared himself Mahdi (comparable to a Messiah). He was a fundamentalist Islamic leader who led a successful military campaign against the Turco-Egyptian rulers of 19th century Sudan. Eventually the revolt resulted in the conquest of Khartoum and the killing of British general Gordon who had been assigned to support the Egyptian garrisons. At the order of the Mahdi the head of Gordon was transfixed between the branches of a tree "where all who passed it could look in disdain, children could throw stones at it and the hawks of the desert could sweep and circle above."
Six months after the battle of Khartoum in 1885 the Mahdi died of typhoid.
