This Cathedral was built by Emperor Haile Selassie and is very impressive. The stained glass windows are beautiful and enhance the aura of spirituality of the place. Many prominent Ethiopians are buried in the Cathedral lawns

We visited here with Dil Tours and it was a great experience. The cathedral itself is beautiful, but with a guide you get so many details that makes it even more interesting.

It is an artistic and historical church of Ethiopian Orthodox Church. It is more of spiritual. Make sure that you respect the rules from the gate. It is not allowed to go into inside easily.
