Hundreds of believers from across the country gathered to the HolyVirgin Temple in Assenovgrad for the big religious feast of Meso-Pentecost. Every year, 25 days after Easter, the icon of the Holy Mother is taken out in a procession and carried to Bachkovo Monastery for worship, after which it is returned to the temple late in the evening.  Photo: BTA
