Emperor Fasiladas' Bath

Gonder, Amhara, Ethiopia
Because of Tinket in late January, Emperor Fasilides Bath 2,800 m2 bath or pool was being filled for baptism during the forthcoming Timket festival. Otherwise it is empty. Being only partially filled, loved the reflections. I'm sure that you will not know if one of the pictures is the right way up or not? In fact it is the reflection.

For Tinket, the grounds will be packed shoulder to shoulder and people literally hanging off the tree branches. Yes, love to one year return and witness for myself this very important religious festival.

The Banyon tree roots reminded me of the ruins of Ankor at Cambodia, particularly Ta Phrom.
