Holy Trinity Cathedral
An important place of worship for the followers of the Orthodox faith, the Holy Trinity Cathedral is a majestic place filled with spectacular artwork. With its towering dome and stunning statues of angels, the cathedral’s exterior is beautiful to see. The inside is just as impressive, with its magnificent stained-glass windows and grand murals depicting biblical stories; Honorable Laureate Maitre Artiste Afewerk Tekle’s painting of the Holy Trinity is one of the cathedral’s highlights. Visit the churchyard and you can see the imperial tombs of Emperor Haile Selassie, his wife Empress Menen Asfaw and the late Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. The church is also the final resting place of patriots and war veterans, including Ras Imru. A museum showcasing artefacts can also be found in the church.
