located on top of Entoto Hill, Maryam Church is a must see if ever you will be in Addis Ababa, easy to go there by public but I recommend private transpo.

It is a colorful orthodox church thats full of history and a witness of the greatness of Ethiopia.

Outside theres a priest to greet you and you can already experience a traditional Ethiopian religion.

Also in this church there is a museum full of Ethiopian historical treasures and knowing the story you will appreciate the country, museum fee is 100birr and no taking of pictures =(

But! Only pictures outside the museum and church.

Theres also an old traditional Ethiopian house at the back of the church.

An ancient octagonal church on the top of Entoto Hill . Good spot for history buffs
Old colorful building and view of addis from the top is breath taking , Very serene spot

Surprised on the visiting fee they are charging to foreigner, Not worth to pay this amount . Lot of sick people around the vicinity but they will not trouble you
will not go again

long trip from the centre of Addis to find..........nothing. It is far from the centre. You pass some place where they sell local fabrics but not really worth buying anything.

Entoto was the former residence of Ethiopian Emperor Menelik II and Empress Taitu before Addis Abeba was founded. The church is beautiful.

I enjoyed walking in the church grounds and hearing the sounds of the faithful worshipping. There are several interesting building to look at. The museum was sadly very tacky though.

If you want to go to Entoto Maryam church, go alone at a time when there is no church service. The silence and scenery make the church special. Entoto Maryam is found in the middle of a dense forest that oversees Addis from top. The compound is found at the highest pick of Addis Ababa and you feel like you are already in the countryside. On your way up, you will enjoy spectacular view of Addis Ababa. The Entoto hills are very popular for hiking on Saturday/Sunday mornings.
But beware of bad smells and human wastes in the area.
