Being one of the eminent archaeological sites in the great Lakes of Africa, Ryamurari is situated on the top of a hill named Mukama/ “Mu Bitabo bya Gahaya, igitabo” which means a clay curved form that was built before entering a traditional hut and “Bitabo bya Gahaya” meaning a place that belongs to a mighty person named “Gahaya” with Ryamurari meaningthere was a great person named Murari who inhabited the site and this area consists of Rwanda, Burundi, Nkole and Ndorwa with Mukama meaning God/Chief/King elaborating that it belonged to a King or Chief. The site enhances both the archaeology and oral traditions about Rwanda due to the fact as stated by (Van Noten 1982, Tshihiluka 1983) that its earth work structures served as paddocks where as the size and bearing of labor needed to achieve this work with reliability of vast cattle carcass show that there is someone who knew how to graze cattle and this person taught others on how to do the same.
