Lalibela Ethiopia: Monolithic churches carved from a single block of stone

▌► ▌ whanethewhip.wikidot.com Lalibela located in Northern Ethiopia is the site of 11 churches that have been cut entirely out of a single block of stone from top down into the ground. Lalibela was not built or constructed, but literally cut from stone. This amazing building technique is considered by many to be a mystery. This segment is from the “Ancient Aliens” season 3 episode 3 originally aired on the History channel and there was more than what I provide here. This is the only monolithic site known to be related directly to Christianity. In addition to the pure mystery surrounding these stone structures, there are also myths suggesting that Lalibela was also once used as a shield to protect the Ark of the Covenant.
