This is the most mysterious complex in Lalibela, housing its holiest shrine, the Selassie Chapel, and – according to the whispers of the priests – perhaps evens the tomb of King Lalibela himself. Not by accident is it here that some of the most beautiful processional crosses of Lalibela will be shown to you: a very rich and elaborate metal cross, black with age and decorated with inlaid circles, is said to have belonged to King Lalibela, His rod and stool may (but not must) also be shown to you, His “stool” is a wooden manber, a’ carved cruciform. Container of the labat on six legs. While the ancient entrance to this group was probably from the west, passing the hollowed block of the Tomb of Adam, the courtyard is now entered from the south, being connected by the trench leading to the Bet Maryam churches. A side door leads to the first church, Bet Debre Sina or Bet Mika’el.
