St. George's Cathedral in Addis Ababa

A popular pilgrimage site for Rastafarians, St. George's Cathedral Ethiopia is an Orthodox Church built in 1896. It's one of the top tourist destinations in Addis Ababa, and has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Visitors might find the church closed unless services are scheduled, but the exterior of the octagonal shaped building is just as fascinating as its interior. There's also a small museum on site with lots of relics and paintings, so a trip to the Cathedral is well worth the time spent.
