Not quite sure what to say about this place as it was rather underwhelming. While the grand cathedrals of Europe are probably not a suitable basis for comparison, this place felt more like the grounds of a large church rather than the foremost place of worship for the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, which is the second largest Orthodox denomination in...

I went to visit the church and museum and a young man calling himself Danny attached himself to me and guided me around. He didn't ask if I wanted a guide but he seemed to know his stuff and after visiting the church and museum he took me on to another church close by. He ended our 'tour' in a... More

It is one of the nice tourist attraction in Addis Ababa. You can plan for a normal city tour with this place as one of the option.

One of my favorite sites I visited while in Addis. Beautiful church with a tremendous amount of history associated with it. Haile Selassie and his wife tomb is inside the church along with tombs of important figures in Ethiopian government and history surrounding the church. Behind the church, nestled in a small building is a museum which has beautiful, impressive... More
