Easter Sunday

Easter, the Sunday of the Resurrection, is the most important religious feast of the Christian liturgical year and celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus as the basis for the salvation of mankind. This year Easter Sunday is observed on April 8.

It is observed by most Christians, although many non-Christians observe secular practices, especially in the Western world and celebrations generally include; religious church services, Easter egg hunts and the exchange of gifts.

Here in Tiruvannamalai, the religious demographic is around 30% non-Hindu; which includes both Christian and Moslem. In this respect there are several Christian and Protestant churches in the town, which will doubtlessly will be well attended this coming Sunday.

Above is a picture of one of the Christian Churches, Deus Monde, at Tiruvannamalai.
