Sheikh Abdul Mutalib

The shrines of the Orang Cayen of Constantia, though the most prominent, are not the only graves of Auliyah to be found. In 1972 another grave was identified by woodcutters working in Constantia.

The Orang Cayen of 1667 were not the only political exiles sent to the Company’s forest in Constantia. During Company rule many political prisoners of high standard were exiled to the Cape.
