Once the capital of Africa’s oldest empires, Axum city is cited from 400BC. Littered with UNESCO Heritage sites including famous Stelae; granite monoliths from pre-Christian times, decorated with symbolic engravings. This former centre of the Axumite kingdom acted as connecting point of Africa to Asia for nearly 1000 years. Archaeological sights & hidden treasures are yet to be discovered, archaeologists believe. The Ark of the Covenant is also believed to rest here.

These lovely stelae are the highlight of Aksum. It doesn't take long to see them but they are impressive and are the primary reason to visit Aksum.

It's cool if you're into ancient ruins and or architecture.
