Mangalore, April 16: The Christian community celebrated Palm Sunday with great devotion on April 17.

Christians believe that, on Palm Sunday, Jesus triumphantly entered the city of Jerusalem, just a week before his death and resurrection. His followers waved palm leaves into the air in his honor as he rode into the city. Christians, therefore, can be observed holding palm leaves on this day, which is also referred to as Passion Sunday.
