Temple of the Moon at Yeha

Yeha town is situated at the north mountainous section of the Tigray region was sight of great pre Axumite civilization. The tantalizing and towering ruins standing in Yeha is filled with magnificence but surrounded in mysteries.

The walls built with precise-fitting blocks of smoothly polished yellow limestone carefully placed without the use of mortar, leave no doubt of the superb quality and craftsmanship involved, and that it is the works of Ethiopia's earliest high civilization .

Apart from the temple, however, little or nothing is known about the people who built this great edifice.

Are there similar buildings somewhere nearby, as yet undiscovered, or is it a lone shrine built at a remote site.

The archaeological excavation in 1909 found inscriptions and fine objects of bronze and other artefacts, but could not shade light on the above mysteries.
