Catholics in the country flock to cemeteries to pay their respects to the departed for All Souls’ Day.

Placing flowers and lit candles on the graves, they offered prayers and cleaned up the tombstones of their loved ones.

All Souls’ Day, which is known in the Roman Catholic church as the ‘commemoration of all the faithful departed’, is observed annually on Nov 2.
