A glimpse into Ethiopia's past and present Feb 24, 2013
Lalibela is a must see if you go to Ethiopia. Located in the north, Lalibela is a short plane ride or a looooong bus ride from Addis Ababa. The rock hewn churches are a part of the country's history as well as they are a part of biblical history. It is rumored that the ark of the covenant was housed at Lalibela and that it was a stronghold for the Templar knights. Whether this is truth or fiction, touring these churches is certainly worth it. The churches are not just historical monuments, they are still in use and if you are lucky you may get to observe a religious ritual.
