This is the only "independent" church in this group, I mean all the rock around has been removed and the church stands alone in a courtyard.
It has a marvellously carved facade, all the details you see on it are carved from the rock, none added afterwards! It is the finest example of Axumite style probably.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
