This photo captured the well known ancient Lalibela Church. Lalibela is a town in the Amhara region of northern Ethiopia. It's known for its distinctive rock-cut churches dating from the 12th and 13th centuries, which are pilgrimage sites for Coptic Christians. Carved out of rock, the subterranean monoliths include huge Bete Medhanialem, and cross-shaped Bete Giorgis Many are joined by tunnels and trenches, and some have carved bas-reliefs and colored frescoes inside. This photo was taken there. The priest is a ministrant of the Church.
