The chest of tablets on which the Ten Commandments were written, according to the Bible, has historically travelled some distance. Now it’s widely believed to be held in the Chapel of the Tablet, adjoining the 16th C stone-built St Mary of Zion Church. No-one is allowed to see the religious relic which is kept under guard. The chapel was designed by Emperor Haile Selassie.
