Tuan Masud

There are also other Kramats around the Western Cape of  whose history very little is known. At Worcester, along the road leading from Rawsonville, the grave of Tuan Masud is to be found.

What is known is that Worcester already had a Muslim slave population early in its existence and that a mosque was built there in 1885. One of the earliest mosques to build outside of Cape Town. Tuan Masud was probably one of the early Muslims slaves forced to work on the farms around Worcester.
