Bahar Dar is the site of several lakeside, straw-hut Ethiopian Orthodox monasteries decorated with colorful Christian art and topped with ostrich eggs. They date from between the 16th and 18th centuries and many contain antique manuscripts. The placemark is on the Zege Peninsula, home to the Ura Kidane Mihret and Bet Maryam monasteries.
