1. Timket (Ethiopian Epiphany) Tours of Ethiopia


    from FANOS Ethiopia Tours Added 35 0 0

    Timket (Ethiopian Epiphany), which falls on the 19th of January is the day when Christians celebrate the baptism of Christ. It's a three-day festival and all the ceremonies are conducted with great pomp. The eve of Timket (18 January) is called Ketera. On this day the tabots of each church are carried out in procession to a place near a river where the next day's celebration will take place. A special tent is set up for each tabot, each hosting a proud manner depicting the church's saint. The ceremony is accompanied by hymns and dances of the priests, drum beating, bell ringing and blowing of trumpets. The next morning (19 January) around dawn ecclesiastics and believers go to the water and attend the praying. A senior priest dips a golden processional cross in the water to bless it and extinguishes a consecrated candle in it. Then he sprinkles the water on the people in commemoration of Christ's baptism. The next day (20 January) is the feast of the Archangel Michael, Ethiopia's most popular saint. This morning, his tabot is returned to his church, again accompanied by singing and dancing of priests. This marks the end of the three-day celebration. The best place to attend the event is Lalibela, Gondar or Addis Ababa.

      from Bob Maddams Added 83 0 0

      Few countries in the world remain largely untouched by time. A journey through northern Ethiopia takes in the rock-hewn churches of Tigray and Lalibela, the mysteries of ancient Axum, the castles of Gonder and the monasteries on Lake Tana, as well as the wild beauty of the Simien mountains. Internal flights, good roads and a handful of luxurious lodges and new hotels are making this largely undiscovered part of the world accessible like never before.

                A Cidade de Gondar ou Gonder, foi a última capital do império da Etiópia localizada na província de Begemder. Fundada pelo imperador Fasilidas (1635) é famosa pelos seus castelos, igrejas e mosteiros bem ao estilo europeu. Neste pequeno video retrato excertos das cerimónias matinais realizadas nas Igrejas Ortodoxas Etíopes de Ilfign Giyorgis e Atatami Mikael, paredes meias com o Castelo Fasiladas, inscrito desde 1979, na lista de Património Mundial da UNESCO. The City of Gondar or Gonder was the last capital of the Ethiopian Empire, located in the Begemder province. Founded by Emperor Fasilidas (1635), it is famous for its castles, churches and monasteries, which closely resemble the European. In this short video footage I show excerpts from the morning ceremonies held in the Ethiopian Orthodox Churches of Ilfign Giyorgis and Atatami Mikael, next to the Fasiladas Castle, included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites since 1979.
