Ethiopian faith radiates from two cities: Jerusalem and Lalibela, in Ethiopia’s highlands. ‘Jerusalem of Africa’ is one of the names given to Lalibela, also known as ‘Black Jerusalem’. It is famous for its 12th century monolithic churches carved out of the ‘living rock’, and is one of the world's great wonders. These exceptional shrines are said to have been built during the 25-year reign of King Lalibela – with, as legend has it, more than a little help from the angels.
