The story goes that the eleven churches in Lalibela very designed and hewn from the rock by King Lalibela himself in the 12th century. The complex was built to be the new Jerusalem.

NB: As we took so many pictures that day I divided them into three sets: Northern group, Saint George and Eastern group.
