  • Description

    In the warm spring sunshine a long procession of clergy, pilgrims and tourists wound its way through the streets of Jerusalem, Mar 31, along the route taken by Christ on his Palm Sunday entry into the City.

    Carrying the traditional palm branches thousands of people from many countries and various walks of life passed through the Mount of Olives and the Gardens of Gethsemane to St Anne's Church inside the walls of the old city. A service was held at the tomb gardens of the Holy Sepulchre.

    For the past weeks thousands of pilgrims have arrived in the city to take part in the Easter celebrations. City official estimate that there are over 10,000 pilgrims and tourists in the city.
