Wukro Cherqos

Directly at the edge of the small town of Wukro (47 Kms from Mekelle), on a knoll of red rock, is the rock- cut church of Wukro Cherqos.The church is supposed to have been constructed in the 4 C by the two kings Abreha and Atsbeha. It is one of the first of the rock churches of Tigray. The upper part of the wall and the ceilings were painted, even though, most the painting has been faded, but still a good impression of the decoration can be gained. A number of scenes can be distinguished: cherubim and angles, the Abune Samuel, the Nine Saints, St. Qirqos.
