Koma Fassilades is a historical site 160 km from Bahir Dar, 104 km from Debre Tabor and 48 km from Jesus.
It is written in 1597 that Emperor Fassilides’ mother, Queen Wolde Sahle, was founded.
Emperor Fasil was born in Koma and moved to Gondar when he was 12 years old. Emperor Fasil’s mother, Queen Wolde Sahle, was the wife of King Susinius. During the Gondar dynasty, when the king renounced Christianity and converted to Roman Catholicism, the queen said she would not change her religion. People were heard saying, “Let the queen pass. Lets see.” The local name is said to be Estie-Este. When they arrived at the same stand, they were standing where the parish is now.
It is the place where Bradige’s first temple was built. It took about 7 years and was completed. The white bull that was slaughtered for the graduation ceremony got up and ran to where the church is now. He said that he did not allow this temple to be built.
The building of Emperor Fassilides 415 years ago was demolished due to lack of proper care and protection; Another design of the Gondar palace is said to have been taken from here. The church is named after the martyr St. Fassilides. The ark came from his native Antioch. It is celebrated on September 11 and December 11. They speak.
The church was renovated in 2005. With the renovation, the exterior of the church was made of cement, destroying its historicity, but the walls of the temple and the sanctuary remain intact. There are 12 wooden poles in the sanctuary. These poles are made of olive and pine wood, and the poles are attached to each other without any glue. When the pillars were erected, the people who built the church said that when the pillars were difficult to plant, they were one and the same, planted by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The church’s archeology includes parchment books, iron bells, silver drums, Negarit, gold cross and various ancient relics donated by Emperor Fasil, Queen Woldesahla and other emperors. Also among the oldest immovable artifacts in the church are murals, frescoes, furniture, and church buildings built during the Gondar period. One of the things that makes this church special is the fact that the furniture and the crosses on the dome of the church are all made of gold.
