TOL Remark:
We think the state government of Tigria is doing a very poor job on maintaining, preserving, publicizing, and using the historical wealth of Tigrai. The state government should learn from the neighboring states who are maximizing their historical sites. If there is a need it should utilize outside professional help.

From Yeha to the hundreds of rock hewn Churches found throughout Tigrai there are countless and exquisite historical sites in the state. The problem is extremely poor management and not having a dedicated department with professional members. Millions of dollars can be made by attracting the right crowd of tourists and raise the profile of the state itself.
