An orthodox church at the top of mount Entoto.

Mount Entoto is the highest peak overlooking the city of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Mount Entoto is part of the Entoto mountain chain, reaching 3,200 meters above sea level. It is also a historical place where Menelik II resided and built his palace, when he came from Ankober and founded Addis Ababa. It is considered a sacred location and holds many monasteries.

Articles of historical significance that were donated by members of the royal family, foreign diplomats and individuals are well displayed in the Entoto Museum. Architectural design and the inner wall paintings of the church are fascinating.
