The asserted places where Emperor Tewodros II was born and led shifta life in Quara, attended his church education and achieved successive victories in Matama and Dembia, crowned as emperor at Derasgie, manufactured fire arms at Gafat, and committed suicide at Maqdala are some of the places of his memorials. However, references over viewed some of important subjects, such as the details of the source of raw materials used, the people involved and the technology implied in the manufacture of the firearms at Gafat and its transportation from Gafat to Maqdala. Many countries use architectural symbolism in memorial monuments, cultural projects, landscapes and institutions to commemorate individuals and groups. On the other hand, though significant battles were fought and huge sacrifices were made to defend the sovereignty of Ethiopia, many of the leaders and events are not well commemorated and some have been altered to suit changing political circumstances. Battle of Maqdala, at which Emperor Tewodros committed his dramatic suicide and Battle of Matama at which Emperor Yohannes IV was killed and beheaded, are among the significant sites denied due attentions.
