Again, a bit out of the way. But my o my is it gorgeous. Tree roots coming out form the walls and the most amazing surroundings. Nearby is a large open space that used to play host to communist rallies (so we were told!). Very interesting but again, pay a guide otherwise the history can be lost on you! I think January is the time to go here, they actually fill it up and Westerners can take part in the ceremony and jump in the pool which is absolutely huge!

This is well worth visiting, even when it has no water in it! The stone work is amazing and I love the tree roots that are growing through the walls...beautiful!

There was little water in the pool when we visited in July, but the site itself was most charming, particularly the centuries-old banyan trees with their tendril like roots spilling over the walls and paving. A lovely, calm spot to wander for a while.

We think the Royal Enclosure and the Debre Birhan Selassie are the two must sees. This one is also good if you have time. We were told that the pool is filled once a year. And it's cool to know and to image how thousands of people come here every year to celebrate the Epiphany Festival with the ceremony replicating Christ's baptism.

Very nice park like area that is nice to stroll around and take in the history that once was. The pool fills for a celebration every year where the crowds gather and dip in the holy water.
