This wonderful rock-hewn church is easy to reach because it is 15km from Wukro on the road going to Hawsien. It is said that it was built by emperor Abreha and his brother Atsbeha. It is one of the most revered churches in Tigrai.
I liked the roof which was very nicely carved and it was supported by many pillars and arches. There are also some well-preserved murals. The church officials told us that the prayer cross kept there, belonged to Abba Salama the first bishop of Ethiopia, appointed by king Abreha.
