Kailash Mansarovar Yatra Info

Mt.Kailash, the snow jewel crowning the roof of the world, the most sacred and admired. Also known as Sumeru Parvat.

According to the Hindu Mythology Lord Siva resides on the summit of Kailash and is in constant meditation ensuring continuity of three aspects of the universe – creation, preservation and destruction. Thus Siva represents the Trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Mahadeva. Kailash, unlike other mountains of the world, has a distinct shape with features most peculiar and pious both outwardly and eternally that are not known anywhere else.

The Lake Mansarovar is a grand creation of the nature, which is not only revered by the Hindu followers, but also valued by the followers of the other religions like Jain and Buddhism.

It is believed that just a single circuit of the Kailash Mountain brightens the life and wipes out the sins of the lifetime. It emancipates Jivas from the vicious cycle of the births and the deaths consequently entering into the Brahma`s paradise.
