Easter, the day of resurrection of Jesus Christ after crucifixion, is celebrated with religious fervour and traditional enthusiasm across the globe.
Devotees throng churches since the wee hours to attend special prayers and services to mark the holy occasion.
While leading the masses, bishops and priests impart the message of hope and spiritual revival.
Easter, which falls at the end of the 'Passion Week' also marks the culmination of the 40-day-long lent, during which devotees abstain from worldly pleasures and luxuries.
Traditional feasts were also arranged in most Christian homes on Easter.
