Historical Sites 


Axum was the ancient political and religious capital of Ethiopia.

As legend says Queen Sheba, who reigned around 1000 B.C. had Axum as her royal capital. Axum is also known to be the home of the Ark of the Covenant.

The area of Axum is a home to steles, all decorated in the same style, with doors and windows and astral imagery at the top.

Lalibela in Ethiopia is one of the sacred sites in Ethiopia where it consists of the eleven rock-hewn churches, each carved entirely out of a single block of granite.

To reach the entrance of each church, people have to descend through a steep channel cut from the rock or pass through a tunnel from a neighboring church.

The rock-hewn churches of Lalibela are located in a remote and mountainous area of northern Ethiopia.




Gonder was founded by King Fasiledes in 1636; it was the capital of Ethiopia for nearly 200 years. Gondar is known for its seventeenth century Royal Enclosure.

The palaces of Gondar are built roughly hewn brown basalt stones held together with lime mortar. The architecture has Indian, Portuguese and Axumite influences.

The Church of Debre Birhan Selassie “Trinity Mountain of Light” was built by Emperor Eyasu. The church is famous for the mural paintings on the ceiling.

Harar is found in the east of Addis Ababa at 525 kms. It is one of the historic sites in Ethiopia. 

The Harari live almost entirely within the walls that have encircled this city for more than three hundred years, maintaining their own language, customs and crafts.

The great mosque within the walls is known as Al-Jami and there are many smaller ones. One of the attractions in Harar is the hyena men who make their living by collecting offal and bones which they feed to the wild hyenas around the city.
