Ras Tafari's House information
Within pouncing distance of Rimbaud’s House is the conspicuous Ras Tafari’s House. The house was built by an Indian trader and many of its features, such as the Ganesh carving above the door, are Eastern in origin. Haile Selassie spent his honeymoon here: hence the house bears his pre-coronation name. It’s now the home of the Sherif Harar City Museum . The museum houses a private collection of weaponry, coins, jewellery, household tools and cultural dress. The owner will probably offer to show you his book-restoration workshop upstairs.
