  • The stelae field is really interesting. It is astonishing that there are some still standing after all these years.

  • In my opinion, this is not the best historical site in the country. Can give it a miss if short of time.

  • The underground King Kaleb's palace. It was astonishing to visit a 2000 years old castle.
  • I don't dislike it by the way, i just wish it had been kept in a better condition than is being taken care of now. I also wish it had better accommodations for the tourists
