The Samaritan Shavuos

Members of the Ancient Samaritan community pray during a pilgrimage marking the end of the holy day of Shavuot. The pilgrimage took place at the religion's holiest site on Mount Gerizim, near the West Bank town of Nablus SOURCE: Guardian Eyewitness series

Gives us an idea, I expect, of how our own ancient pilgrimage to a holy mountain may have looked....
