Inside The Churches At Lalibela

When you carve a church out of solid rock, there's not a lot of room for huge, soaring windows. The interior spaces of the Lalibela churches are mostly dark and a bit cramped, to be expected with solid rock walls and the need to support heavy roofs.

There is still room for altars and some religious ornamentation. The works need to adjust to the spaces provided.
