Few Ethiopian houses of worship, like Debre Damo (above) and Degum, can be probably credited to the Aksumite time frame. These two designs likely date to the sixth 100 years or later. As yet standing pre-sixth century Aksumite chapels have not been unhesitatingly distinguished. Nonetheless, archeologists trust that a little
number of now-destroyed structures dating to the fourth or fifth century worked as holy places — an end in view of highlights like their direction. An enormous ventured platform in the compound of the congregation of Mary of Zion in Aksum (considered by the Ethiopians as the home of the Ark of the Contract), presumably once gave admittance to a huge church worked during this period.
It appears to be logical that holy places kept on being worked as well as cut
(cut) out of rock. A gathering of funerary hypogea (underground loads) in the Hawzien plain (in northern Ethiopia) may have been changed into houses of worship during the post-Aksumite period. This could be the situation for chapels like Abreha-we-Atsbeha (underneath) and Tcherqos Wukro (the compositions in these temples presumably date from a later period).
