Lalibela

Lalibela, formerly known as Roha, is a remote town in northern Ethiopia considered to be the country's holiest site after Axum. Built in response to the capture of Jerusalem by the Muslims, Lalibela was originally intended to be a New Jerusalem, with many of its buildings modelled after sites in Jerusalem.
