It shouldn’t be forgotten. Anon.
The Palace of Be’al Geubri (Grat Be’al Geubri) was built in the 8th century BC in Yeah, the first capital city of Ethiopia. It was a multi-storey palace, constructed in wood-stone architecture. It is the largest known timber-framed building in East Africa and South Arabia and the oldest example south of the Sahara. It originally measured at least 27 meter high with five floors on a squared ground plan of about 60 x 60 m. The current ruins of the palace consist of the portico and two sets of square pillars and are located about 200 m to the north east of the remains of the Great Temple. The painting is based on a reconstruction of the palace by M. Schnelle.
