Lalibela, Ethiopia

Ethiopia is a land of mystery and spirituality, having ties to Jerusalem though the son of King Solomon and Queen of Sheba. Ethiopian Christians believe that the Ark of the Covenant is in Axum, Ethiopia.

Church in Lalibela, EthiopiaLegend has it that Lalibela was built by King Lalibela, as a New Jerusalem. In a failed assignation attempt, the soul of King Lalibela was carried to heaven where God directed him to dig special churches, rather than build them, thus we have what some consider the 8th wonder of the world, the carved churches of Lalibela.

Carved church in Lalibela, EthiopiaThere are 11 of these churches. They date from the 1100s to the 1200s and are literally carved out the volcanic terrace, over 8000 feet above sea level.

 

All have the features of a constructed church and they are all connected by passage ways and tunnels.

Tunnels in Lalibela, EthiopiaChurch clergy in Lalibela, EthiopiaThey are active places of worship, placing importance on worship, as attested to by the monk cells carved in the unattached walls next to the churches.

Each church has created it's own cross design and has it's own clergy. This is also a place of pilgrimage and sometimes also pilgrims come here to die and have their remains stay.

 

Bet Giorgis famous church in Lalibela, EthiopiaThe most famous church and definitely the most picturesque is Bet Giorgis. It is hewn in the shape of a cross from the bottom to the top and has wonderful details.
