Pilgrimages are very popular and a major part of life in Ethiopia, among both Christians and Muslims. Ancient monasteries and tombs of saints are regularly visited by the devout, especially on appropriate feast days. One of the two most frequently visited pilgrimage sites are the shrine of St Gabra Manfas Qaddus, popularly known as Abbo, atop the extinct volcano, Mt Zaqwala, south of Addis Ababa. As with other holy sites, the presence of water here in the form of a crater lake may suggest a locus of pilgrimage that predates the introduction of Christianity. The other is the great church of St Gabriel at Qullabi near Harar. The Holy Land is, however, the ultimate goal of the pilgrim, and the Ethiopian Church has had foundations in Jerusalem and along the Jordan Valley since its early years.
