ROCK-HEWN CHURCHES IN ETHIOPIA.




The spectacular rock-hewn churches in Lalibela, Ethiopia was constructed by King Lalibela in the 12th century.

It was a quest to create a new Jerusalem when the Muslim conquest paused christian pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

There are eleven churches that are assembled into three groupings; namely, the Northern, Eastern and Western groups.

What's more intriguing is that the churches were not contructed with blocks but chiseled out from a rock of monolithic blocks. Wow!

Imagine all the hours of hard labour and chiseling with bare hands. And something this beautiful was created. I wish I could visit this site.
