Next to the museum is the first church of Addis Ababa, Entoto Maryam Church, which hosted Menelik's coronation in 1882. Behind the church is the very historical place where Menelik II resided and built his palace, this is also where Menelik II and Queen Taitu founded Addis Ababa. It was wonderful to walk around the area, observing the intricate detail on the church, as well as enjoying the fresh air and unbelievably beautiful landscape and view of Addis.
