The Mausoleum is the resting place of a great Emperor along with his wive and daughters as well as notable figures from the past of the country. Today it serves as a church but you can still visit the place to see the White Marble Tombs, paintings, and other artefacts evoking the life of the late ruler. This magnificent piece of architecture was built in 1913 to house the tomb of Emperor Menelik II .High up on the hill that overlooks the city, two Lion statues guard each entrance to the mausoleum. The tombs are of great architectural interest and paintings are magnificient. The painting and decorations are excellent and the Church itself is a joy to behold. They also have a Michaelangelo painting that is valued at 20 million GBP. There is a lot of interesting wildlife here including tortoises which happily graze on the lawns.
