Unmarried female members of a church in South Africa are subjected to a virginity test, and those who pass receive a virginity certificate.
The Nazareth Baptist Church is a church that may be found in the northern region of Durban, South Africa, in Ebuhleni.
The test is reportedly intended to promote virginity among women in society.
The exercise concludes with the successful participants receiving a Certificate of Virginity, which is an annual event.
Also, a white mark of purity is placed on the forehead of the virgins.
The test is usually conducted in the middle of every year and the certificate issued becomes invalid by the middle of the following year when the next virginity test is conducted by the church.
Below are photos of some of the ladies who passed the virginity test.
