Ethiopian's ancient Stelae in Askum goes green for St. Patrick's Day
As part of the global campaign on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2015, the Axum Obelisks went green. This year for the first time, the ancient Stelae in Aksum joined the list of famous landmarks worldwide going "green" on Saint Patrick’s Day.
