Royal Enclosure, Gonder: 20 reviews and 42 photos
In the compound within the walls are more ruins and buildings of later periods. So we saw the ruins of a bathing pool, the remains of the Emperor Dawit's Hall and the House of Song. Dawit, ruling from 1716 till 1712, has built also a Lion house, where the Abyssinian lions were kept.
After Dawit was poisoned the next emperor Bakaffa built a huge banqueting hall and stables. The last castle that was built, is the Mentewab's castle, which is now used as a public library.
Directions: The Royal Enclosure is a few minutes walk north of the towncentre of Gonder.
