King Lalibela wanted to create a New Jerusalem. What he did was create one of the Wonders of the World. Many people are familiar with the tomb facades carved out of the rock in Jordan. King Lalibela went a lot further. He had the rock cut away from all 4 sides creating Churches. He then had the insides cut out, leaving doors, windows and internal structures inside. A truly amazing feat not seen anywhere else in the world on this scale.
Please visit my Lalibela Page for a lot more information and great pictures:
