CHAPEL OF THE TABLET. According to the Kebra Nagast, the Ark of the Covenant traveled with Menelik, the son of the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon, from Israel to Ethiopia. To this day, many Ethiopians believe that the real Ark of the Covenant resides within the Chapel of the Tablet next to the Church of Maryam Tsion in Aksum.
