Visit 9 Mile Village on your Jamaican holiday and pay tribute to Bob Marley, the “King of Reggae.” On this half-day tour from Montego Bay you’ll see where the reggae great was born, places that inspired his music, and visit his burial site as well.
What to Expect
Located in the Parish of St. Ann, Jamaica, 9 Mile Village is known for its market, but better known as the birthplace of Bob Marley, the legendary King of Reggae, and where he was laid to rest.
On this half-day tour from Montego Bay you’ll visit the Bob Marley mausoleum, which is managed by members of Marley's family. This popular tourist attraction features many historical artifacts including his guitars, awards he received, and photographs of events throughout his life.
One highlight of the site is the rock pillow where Marley rested his head when seeking inspiration for his music. His body lies buried along with his guitar in a marble mausoleum inside a tiny church of traditional Ethiopian design.
There are 2 mausoleums on the property. The first is Mama Marley's, and the other entombs Marley as well as his half-brother. Bob's crypt is on the top, and his brother lies in a tomb below. It was Mama Marley's wish that the brothers be buried together.
