  1- Biete Medhane Alem  (House of the Saviour of the World) Description
"Biete Medhane Alem is the largest monolithic rock-hewn church in the world, measuring 11.5m [37' 8"] in height and covering an area of almost 800m2 [8,610 square feet]."

"A plain building, held up by 36 pillars on the inside and another 36 around the outside, Biete Medhane Alem has a classical dignity reminiscent of an Ancient Greek temple, a resemblance that has led some experts to imagine it was modeled on the original St Mary Zion Church built by King Ezana at Axum."

"The interior of the church is also plain, and its huge size creates a cathedral-like austerity. Graves have been carved into the rock floor; they are no longer permanently occupied, Biete Medhane Alem has a wide courtyard whose walls are pockmarked with niches that originally served as graves or hermitsí caves."

"Approaching the most eastern church of this group, Biete Medhane Alem, you first catch a sight of the roof, decorated with relief crosses connected by blind arcades, and the upper part of the solemn colonnade surrounding the church: The roof demonstrates traces of the plaster remains of the restoration efforts of the early 1930ís."

"The tuff, from which the church is carved, blazes a typical deep pink color in striking harmony to the brownish-yellow earth and green-leaved trees of the landscape."

   4- The Tunnel between the Northern Groups  of Churches
    32 metre tunnel carved into the rock with no lighting, the tunnel is small if you are over 5.10 foot (1.55 m) in height and rather daunting because it is so damn dark in there. But when you reach the end you can climb the stairs to heaven.
