    "Burton's tomb fittingly reflects his life. It is built of stone but shaped like a Bedouin tent, though this common description is not entirely accurate. The tomb is actually modelled on a tent that Burton had made for his travels with his wife Isabel to Syria. Apparently it's most important attribute was that Burton could stand upright when inside. The tomb is located in Mortlake, South West London, and both Burton and Isabel now rest there."

    By 1853, Muslim Arabia had for hundreds of years been a closed and secret world. No one who was not a Muslim was allowed to set foot in it. Most of those who made the attempt never lived to tell of the experience. Particularly forbidden to “unbelievers” were two towns most holy to the Muslims — Mecca and Medina. Burton managed to conceal his identity and became one of the only non-Muslim men to ever have been to Mecca and survive.His book "Pilgrimage to Al-Medinah and Mecca" details the trip.
