About The JD Chicago



AKSUM: ANCIENT, TIMELESS AND ALIVE

Aksum is a cradle of Ethiopia’s ancient civilization. Located 257 kms North West of Mekelle, the regional capital, Aksum is an exotic tourist destination that offers a unique combination of beguiling history, natural beauty, perfect weather , serene environment and unmatched hospitality.

Truly, Aksum was ahead of its time. Unlike many other states of the time, Aksumites knew how to tame animals, cultivate cereals, mint coins and curve extraordinary obelisks the likes of which are unknown to humankind. They accepted Christianity early on, developed their unique alphabet and created a peculiar system of composing and chanting religious hymns.

Indeed, Aksum was the most inventive state of its time. Shaped and reshaped by profound faith, sophisticated administration, boundless prosperity and artistic and engineering brilliance, Aksum is an ancient Ethiopian city that once shone over the expansive territory that stretches from the fertile highlands of eastern Africa to the barren deserts of southern Arabia. In terms of its sanctity as well as greatness of its empire, Aksum is like Jerusalem and Rome combined. In essence, Aksum is faith, holiness, history and tranquility all wrapped in one.

Foreign Testimonial

Exotic and unique in many instances, Tigrai is truly a tourist's paradise. It is simply an Open – Air Museum..



I have been in St. Marry of Zion in Axum in Hidar 20-22, 2008 E.C. along with my whole family. I was highly amused about the varieties of people coming from different corners of the world for prayer and also the number is too enormous. And people of the town are kind, supportive and peacekeeping. I am proud to be part of these wise and generous people ever.

I was thinking that I would visit a small museum like any other in the area but something was absolutely different. I found hundreds of things, artifacts, and archaeological findings, so pure, original and intact. This museum is a "must-go" especially for those that love archaeology. If you ever visit Tigray, don't pass this Museum without a visit. It will be worth it.

We love to hike and don't mind heights so we got to enjoy the beautiful views along the way and certainly at the top. The church itself is lovely but as the old saying goes - it's as much about the journey as the destination. There are helpers along the way to show you the handholds and ropes are available for the bit of extra security. A must if you are in the area - don't miss it.

The only reason to visit Axum has to be the stelae fields. These fascinating columns look like they were erected by giants. The tombs beneath are equally fascinating. Very atmospheric, especially at night when they are all lit up..

our dignity resides under the shelter of our culture!.



this church (Abreha we Atsibeha) has so many old books, a really enticing place to visit. Everyone welcomes you and happy to tell all the stories about it. I totally recommend tourists to go see this wonderful historical church.

A journey to remember but not for the faint-hearted!! Precipitous drops, no barriers etc. - you need a good head for heights and you need to be in pretty good physical shape as there is a bit of roped climbing to do(Abune Yemaeta).
