Church of the Madona inside a Baobab tree in keren

The Shrine of Mariam Dearit (also known as the Madonna of the Baobab) is situated in a naturally hollow trunk. A black statue of Virgin Mary is standing in this very small natural wooden chapel. The surrounding compound with its long lines of trees creating refuge for singing birds is in itself a breathtaking divine place. It is visited by thousands of pilgrims from far and near. The sick come for healing, the childless seeking to be blessed with a child, and others coming to beg for mercy. The Shrine of Mariam Dearit is famous for its May 29 Festival held annually.
