St George's Church

In Lalibela, I visited the famous rock hewn churches

In Lalibela, I visited the famous rock hewn churches. These churches built in the 12th Century are an architectural masterpiece. Now a UNESCO designated site, the churches are a must-see in Ethiopia. King George’s church though smaller than some of the others, is the most spectacular. Standing next to the church, it was hard to believe these churches were cut out of rocks. Human beings are truly capable of achieving astonishing feats (I was surely reminded once again of this fact).
Here are pictures and a video of these unique churches. Have a fantastic day.
