Think the Trip Advisor title is misnomer. This is a UNESCO heritage site. Not of ruins but of superbly carved Stelae. Breath taking! Standing tall and strong! The stelae carvers improved their skills over time. The first ones are small and rough. The next bunch is polished. Then they started carving them. First on 3 sides. Then on 4 sides! It is believe the broken stele came crashing down because it's base was too short, thereby ending the stele building era. The museum is very much worth a visit. A very good DVD about Tigray cultural places is also on show.
