30 Beautiful But Forbidden Places On Earth

Chapel of the Tablet, Ethiopia

#2 Chapel of the Tablet, Ethiopia

In Aksum, Ethiopia, a chapel is said to hold the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark was then later said to have been to the Chapel adjacent to the old Church, which is where it stays now.

The security and secrecy surrounding the Ark are incredible. So much so that the leader of the Church is not allowed to see or even access the Ark.

The only person allowed to access the Ark is the Guardian of the Covenant, who is also appointed as the Guard of the Ark. Not just anybody can be named as the Guard.

The old Guard chooses every succeeding guard. There also remains a stipulation that they must be a virgin.
