The World Heritage status of the site has contributed to a sense of shared global responsibility for its conservation and to socio-economic development through the use of heritage as a tourism resource. This development needs to be balanced to prevent irreversible damage and loss of inestimable heritage resources. Lalibela is a living heritage.

A group of eleven churches carved out of nothing by a huge chunk of stone thousands of years ago with primitive tools have rightly been declared a UNESCO world’s heritage site. They are of utmost importance to Ethiopian Orthodox Christians as they form a pilgrimage site with specific spiritual and symbolic value with a layout representing the holy city of Jerusalem.
