HISTORY OF THE CITY OF GONDAR<p>by Solomon Getahun
 

HISTORY OF THE CITY OF GONDAR

Brief Description
Detailed Description
Specifications
The city of Gondar served as a permanent seat of government in Ethiopia for about four centuries. During these times, the city witnessed the evolution of various quarters such as Ichage Bet, Abun Bet, Kayla Meda, Islam Bet (Adis Alam), and Digaye. While some of these quarters pre-date the city itself, others like Che Che La are new additions that are related to the Italian occupation of Ethiopia, 1935-1941. These quarters also tell their own stories about the socio-economic and cultural operations in Gondar; and about its Judaio-Christian and Islamic population—in a city that boasts of forty-four churches.
