Subukia township is located approximately 43 kilometers from Nakuru town along Nakuru-Nyahururu road.
The town is famous because of the Subukia Catholic shrine which is located along Nyeri-Nyahururu road, about 4 kilometers from Subukia town.
In May 1984, Cardinal Maurice Michael Otunga proposed that the shrine be called “village of Mary, Mother of GOD”
The parish was opened on 15th August 1987 and attracts thousands of catholic pilgrims from across the world annually.
Subukia is also a meeting place of two hemispheres since the Equator is said to cut through the town.
