Full Day trip to Axum

Axum was the center of the marine trading power known as the Aksumite Empire, which predated the earliest mentions in Roman-era writings. Around 356 CE, its ruler was converted to Christianity by Frumentius. Later, under the reign of Emperor Kaleb, Axum was a quasi-ally of Byzantium against the Sasanian Empire which had adopted Zoroastrianism. The historical record is unclear, with ancient church records the primary contemporary sources.

    Stop At: Queen of Sheba's Bath, Enno Littmann St., Axum Ethiopia

    Historic Site in Aksum
    Despite the colorful legends, this large reservoir probably wasn’t where Sheba came to bathe. It was an important reservoir rather than a swimming pool or a gargantuan bath. Nobody is totally sure of its age, but it’s certainly been used as a water source for millennia. Its large size is even more impressive considering it’s hewn from solid rock. It’s also known as Mai Shum, which translates to ‘Chief’s Water’. It’s used for Timkat celebrations, just like Fasiladas’ Bath in Gonder.

    Duration: 2 minutes
