Caption Celebration of St Marys day at a church in the outskirts of Addis Ababa. The holy tablets the so called Ark of the Covenant are taken out from the church and carried around the church once a year. It is believed that Moses 3.000 years ago came down from the Sinai mountain with the tablets given to him by God. It was kept in the most holy place in a temple in Jerusalem. One day it disappeared. Menelik son of King Salomon had taken it to the Saint Mary of Zion church in Aksum in the northern Ethiopia. There are thousands of copies placed in churches all over the country so nobody knows where the original is. People are donating gifts to the church. Ethiopia. CDREF00603, 3747631
