Beta Maryam is possibly the oldest of the churches. In the east wall of the church is an array of geometric carved windows in a vertical line.
The windows illuminate the Holy of Holies in which the church's copy of the Ark is placed. Other decorations include a Star of David combined with a Maltese cross, a Sun with a smiling human face flanked by eight-spoked wheels, Mary on a donkey accompanied by Joseph, and an Annunciation.
