  Debre Berhan Selassie Church
by sachara

The Debre Berhan Selasssi Churchin Gonder, meaning ''Trinity at the Mount of Light'', is one of the most famous churches of the country and one of the highlights of Gonder, because of its ceiling.

At the ceiling you will see the heads of 80 Ethiopian Cherubs. All the faces have a different expression. I allready saw pictures of this ceiling many times, but to be there and see it yourself was very impressive.

Opening hours: daily 5am - 6pm
Admission: 15 Birr

Directions: 2 km northeast of the citycentre and the Royal Enclosure in Gonder
