northen ethiopiaRock-hewn churches of Tigray: over 125 rocks hewn churches are recorded with Tigray-alone. These churches date from 4th-15th century. Most of them are visited around the Gheralta chained mountains. Others are found in eastern and southern Tigray. Abreha-We-Atsbeha, Wukro Cherqos churches are hewn in the 4th century. More than 100 active churches are hand-carved into  the sandstone cliffs and valleys of Tigrai, yet many remained unknown to outsiders until the 1960s, and still go weeks, even months, without seeing a foreign face. With limited time, the Teka Tesfai cluster, which includes the cliff church of Adi Kasho Medhane Alem, forms an easy diversion from the main road. But those with sufficient time, interest and stamina could dedicate a month to exploring these remarkable mediaeval shrines, as the greatest of the historical-cultural heritages of the Ethiopian people.
