Visited the Khalifa’s house across fron the Mahdi’s Tomb. The tomb is the building with the silver domes. I don’t think this is the real tomb, I believe it is a replica of the original which was blown up by the British, but I digress.
The Khalifa succeeded the Mahdi and the house contains muskets and a letter from the Mahdi asking “Monkey” Gordon to surrender. Very historical and interesting.
