Elim

Elim, long been declared a national monument is famous for its thatch roofed homes as are the thatchers from Elim who are sought after as masters of their fine craft. The quaint white washed cottages are painted each year before Easter as a tradition symbolizing purity and simplicity – integral to the lifestyle of the village people who live their lives close to their Church.

The picturesque town is one of the oldest surviving mission stations and is inhabited only by members of the Moravian Church.

Moravian Church and Clock
