In the holy city of Lalibela, Ethiopia, there are eleven churches that have been carved into rock. According to legends, these monolithic churches were rock-cut on the orders of King Gebre Mesqel Lalibela who wanted to offer a pilgrimage site to the Orthodox Christians of the country, a holy land, a new “Jerusalem”.
Today, these churches are still places of pilgrimage for Christians. Located in the north, Biete Medhani Alem Church is considered the largest monolithic church in the world.
