Enjoy a stroll through the scenic gardens at Fasiladas Bath Timket, a large rectangular pool used for baptism in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. A stone summer house (built as a summer residence for royalty) overlooks the water, surrounded by a green park. The pool is filled with water once a year for the country's most important festival, making it the final destination of Ethiopia's colorful holiday procession, the Timket, emulating Christ's baptism.
