A monk stands inside the Ura Kidane Mehret, a church of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, located on the Zege peninsula around Lake Tana in Ethiopia.
The church dates back to the 16th century and typical of churches in Ethiopa, Ura Kidane Mehret is circular in shape on the outside. Inside, the actual chapel is six sided and the walls on all six sides are beautifully painted frescoes depicting various scenes from biblical lore and the history of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
