Church Of Our Lady Mary Zion In Axum, Ethiopia

The most important church in Ethiopia is located in the town of Axum. Why so important? Some little artifact called the Arc of the Covenant is said to be housed on the grounds.

There have been at least four churches built at the site, some still standing; some archeological digs. The most recent church is a modern design, built in the 1950s. It features a pleasing dome design with an airy interior.

Come on in.

Interesting items could be found tucked in the corners of the church. Artifacts, furniture, relics, a religious jumble of stuff.

Flowers and chairs, why not?

Two more corners, two more collections of church items.

The Arc of the Covenant? You think anyone gets to see it? James was chased away for simply snapping this photograph of the exterior of the building that houses the Arc. You gotta go on faith.
