Trinity Cathedral in Addis Ababa commemorates Ethiopia's liberation from five years of Italian occupation.
It is also the second most important place of worship in Ethiopia (after St. Mary's in Axum), and the highest ranking of
Addis Ababa's four Orthodox cathedrals.


The Holy Trinity Cathedral is located next to the Parliament Building near the Arat Kilo (Meyazia 27) Square, which is the government sector of the City of Addis Ababa.

The cathedral is European in style and features statues of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John on its courtyard walls. The interior has some lovely wall

paintings and stained glass windows, all in the distinctive Ethiopian style.

Flags of the various branches of the Imperial Armed forces hang in the nave, and Emperor Haile Selassie and his wife, Empress Menen,

are buried in a special chapel in the north transept.
