CHURCHES OF LALIBELA

 

According to many travelers and travel writers, the Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela are one of the eighth wonders of the world. It is a collection of Orthodox Christian churches carved out of monolith rocks. The churches have fascinating internal channels and walls, full of religious symbols.

These amazing edifices were not constructed as such, but were chipped out of solid rock with only hammers and chisels. The churches of Lalibela indicate the architectural mastery and religious devotion of King Lalibela who is believed to have built them.

It is the site of eleven remarkable churches, believed to have been built in the late 12th or early 13th century. The town was originally called Roha, but was renamed after King Lalibela, who commissioned these churches.
