Sheik Hussein

Sheik Hussein
This religious shrine in Bale province, located on the edge of the Wabe Shebele river gorge, is considered by Ethiopian Muslims as the second Mecca. Muslim pilgrimages gather from all over the country, usually in March and April for prayer, to partake in a ceremony organized in memory of their religious leader, who taught and preached Islam at this very site 800 years ago.
