RESIDENCE OF LORD SHIVA, KAILASH MANASAROVAR
Considered the heavenly abode of Lord Shiva, it is the place where he resided with his wife Goddess Parvati and sons Lord Kartikeya and Lord Ganesha. Situated in the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China, it is the most difficult pilgrimage journey in Hindus.
Mount Kailash: the abode of Lord Shiva and his family, the snow covered peak of the mountain looks almost similar to a pyramid covered always by clouds. The local population believe that a person is considered very lucky if he gets a clear glimpse of the summit.
Lake Manasarovar: facing Mount Kailash it is a lake considered very sacred by the Hindus as they believe that a dip in the lake washes away all the sins even in a hundred births and that the person will go directly to Lord Shiva’s abode after death.
Buddhist Monasteries: the area is surrounded on all sides by different monasteries having tales and legends of its own.
