Bet Danaghel

Lalibela, Amhara, Ethiopia
To the south of the Bet Maryam courtyard is the chapel of Bet Danaghel, said to have been constructed in memory of the maiden nuns martyred on the orders of the 4th-century Roman emperor Julian in Edessa (modern-day Turkey).

Out of Bet Danaghel (4) and we climbed the rock abutment above the tunnel that linked Bet Medhane Alem and Bet Danaghel. From up high we could see these two rock churches from a different angle.
