Wukro Mariyam is a monolithic church located in Emba Senneyti outside of the town of #Nebelet. It is one of the oldest churches in #Tigrai. ″Wukro″ comes from the Geez word ″wekr″ that means ″to dig″.
Its interior is accurately carved, with three aisles and a depth of three bays, with the central bay soaring considerably above the level of the ceiling rock of the side aisles.
Inside Mariam Wukro is a small chapel, Wukro Giyorgis, which is carved into the rock face above the church. It is accessed either by escalating the rock face (with the help of a fixed rope) or via a long wooden ladder.
