Baths of Fasilides, Gondar

This is the Bath of Fasilidas.
Emperor Fasilides built this for
a mass baptism. Then he used
 it for a weekend home for
swimming. The residence
 is actually in the pool. 

Today the pool is filled every
year in January for "Timkat"
and thousands of people come
to reenact the Baptism of Jesus.

A horse was buried here.

Banyon tree roots and very old trees,
by the Pool.The bottom left tree has
 roots on both sides of the wall.
