Harar: It is considered to be the fourth most holy city in Islam after Mecca, Medina and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Harar Founded circa 1520, this legendary walled city, the spiritual heart of Islamic Ethiopia, was the most important trade hub in the 19th century, when the explorer Richard Burton and French poet Rimbaud visited. Despite its Devout pedigree, Harar has a rather hedonistic feel today the compulsive chewing of narcotic khat leaves seems to dominate every aspect of public life, and the bars are unexpectedly lively and plentiful plenty to engage history buffs, too, but touristic pride of place goes to the famously demented hyena men of Harar, who lure wild hyenas to a feeding place on the city outskirts every night
