In a remote part of Tigray region, Yeha lies several hours drive from the more accessible city of Axum, The journey takes you on rough tracks through dramatic highland scenery and eventually ends in a beautiful and serene agricultural hamlet. It is there, close to a much more recent Christian church, that you may see the towering ruins of Yeha's Temple of the Moon - built more than 2,500 years ago, in Sabaean times.
