Ethiopia is a land of contrasts, many people visit Ethiopia - or hope to do so one day - because of the remarkable manner in which ancient historical traditions have been preserved. The ceremonies and rituals of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, open a window on the authentic world of the Old Testament. In no other country is it possible to find yourself so dramatically transported back in time or to participate with such freedom in the sacred rituals of an archaic faith. From Gondar’s royal castles and churches to Axum, the holiest city in the Ethiopian Orthodox church, and the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, you may start to think that the modern world is just a figment of your imagination.
