The Ark of Covenant is also known as the Ark of Testimony.
It can also be called the ark of God.
It is a gold-covered wooden chest containing the tablets of the ten commandments.
The Ark of Covenant has gone missing for centuries now.
The ark vanished when the Babylonians attacked Jerusalem in the 597 and 586 B.C
Till today no one knows if it was stolen or destroyed.
A popular claim is that the Ark had found its way to Ethiopia before the attack of the Babylonians, where it resides in the town of Aksum in the St. Mary of Zion Cathedral.
However only one man is allowed to see it, so no one has been able to study it.
Another claim is that the Ark of Covenant was hidden in a Warren of passages beneath the first temple in Jerusalem before the destruction during the invasion of the Babylonians.
However, it cannot be proved as it is now the site of the Dome of rock shrine which is Sacred in Islam so it can’t be dug.
The most popular claim was in 1981 during the popular movie of Indiana Jones.
The ark is believed to have the power of lightning to kill and fly.
If found and in the wrong hands can be a very powerful weapon.
