Harar, located in the east of Ethiopia, is the fourth holiest Muslim city in the world. There are 82 mosques and over 100 shrines in the city enclosed by city walls built between the 13th and 16th centuries which have 25 towers and 5 gates to enter the city. Inside are elegantly designed townhouses and narrow streets with small shops, evocative of scenes from Arabian Nights. Don't forget to feed the hyena.
