Church of St George: Lalibela

Posted by
: Helen : (ATM Helen is photographing in, Australia) on 24 November 2017 in Architecture.

"The Church of St. George (Amharic: Bete Giyorgis) is one of eleven rock-hewn monolithic churches in Lalibela, a city in the Amhara Region of Ethiopia."

"The church was carved from a type of volcanic tuff. This is the sole architectural material that was used in the structure. It has been dated to the late 12th or early 13th century AD."

Tomorrow I will post the extraordinary view of this church from above.

You have caught the sense space in this, somehow . . it is as important as the building.
