Stock Photo - Lalibela, Amhara region, Ethiopia. A woman prays inside the church Bet Medhane Alem. To admire the churches of Lalibela one does not have to look upwards, but towards the feet. The largest church is Bet Medhane Alem, the largest of all, 33 meters long by 25 meters wide and a lavish decoration reminiscent of Greek temples. The one of Bet Emmanuel, a few hundred meters to the east of the previous one, is one of the most beautiful and best carved of all, that surely served like real chapel. More than 700 years ago, an Ethiopian king decided to make his city the ""Jerusalem"" of the Orthodox Christian world.
