Harar: No journey along Ethiopia’s fabled historic route would be complete without a visit to the medieval walled city of Harar, which stands amid green mountains on the east wall of the Great Rift Valley. Harar’s heritage is almost entirely Muslim and oriental. The most dominant features, apart form its strong encircling walls, is its rich and exciting market place-probably the most colorful in Ethiopia, with its 90 mosques and shrines, Harar is considered to be the fourth most sacred centre of the Islamic world. Its Islamic character is best expressed in the Grand Mosque (Al Jami), which dominates the town. Harar, which has no airport, is 523 km from Addis Ababa, 332 km from Awash station and 55 km from Dire Dawa (the town has an airport). It can be reached by a good, scenic asphalt road.
