At least 30,000 people participated in the Jerusalem Day parade known as the Dance of the Flags, which led to some clashes between marchers and counter-protesters.
The route went in part through eastern Jerusalem before entering the Old City of Jerusalem through the Damascus and Jaffa gates and ending at the Western Wall, where participants sang and danced.
Hundreds of police and security personnel were deployed throughout the city for Sunday's Jerusalem Day festivities.
