DODOMA TOWN.

Tanzania Parliament House -Dodoma

The city is located in the heartland of Tanzania; Dodoma is the nation’s official political capital and the seat of government in the country.  This city is comparably much smaller and less developed than the country’s commercial centre which is Dar es Salaam. Dodoma is a centre for national politics. Situated on the eastern edge of the southern highlands, the city of Dodoma is surrounded by a rich agricultural area and pleasant scenery. Dodoma has many places and items of interest to recommend it to the passing visitor. It is the centre of Tanzania’s growing wine industry and the Tanganyika Vineyards Company is active in promoting its products.

 Historically, Dodoma was a stopover on the overland caravan route that traveled from the Swahili Coast inland toward Lake Tanganyika. Early in the 20th century, the city became a major point on the Central Line railway, which carried agricultural crops for export to the harbor in Dar es Salaam.

Today, the town’s economic base has declined in favor of the coastal city, but in the early days of Tanzanian independence, there was a popular political motion to move the entire government to the town in the southern highlands. These days, the government legislature meets in Dodoma, and divides their time between the inland city and Dar es Salaam on the coast.
