Ark of the Covenant

The Ark of the Covenant is described in the Bible as a holy container where the Ten Commandments and other holy Israelite objects are held.

The Bible describes the Ark as made of acacia or shittah-tree wood. It was about 4.29 × 2.57 × 2.57 feet long  and was covered all over with the purest gold.

The Ark of the Covenant was last seen in 586 BC.

One time King Lalibela of Ethiopia  (reign early 13th century) fell ill and whilst in a coma, he was visited by God in a vision. When he awoke he begun at once to carry out the order he received: to build a spectacular group of churches, hewn out of the rock of this mountainous region. It is speculated that the lost Ark of the Covenant can be found here.
