On the roof of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, above the Helena Chapel, where, according to Christian tradition, the cross was found, there is a courtyard. It belongs to Ethiopian monks and they call it Dir a-Sultan (royal monastery) after King Solomon. They consider Solomon to be the ancestor of the dynasty of Ethiopian kings. According to their version, the Queen of Sheba gave birth to a son after a visit to King Solomon. Having matured, he also visited Jerusalem and returned to his homeland with the Ark of the Covenant, which is kept to this day in the Ethiopian city of Aksum.
