The Holy Mt. Kailash Mansarovar is considered as a sacred place in five religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Ayyavazhi and the Bon faith. Tibetans call Kailas Kang Rimpoche. According to Hinduism, Lord Shiva Resides on top of Mount Kailash, where he sits in a state of meditation along with his wife Parvati, and the Daughter of Himalaya. The Kailash Parvat is believed to be the ultimate destination of souls and the spiritual center of the world. Like Mount Kailash, Lake Mansarovar is the abode of purity. It is a place of pilgrimage, attracting Hindus from all over the world. Taking a bath in Mansarovar and drinking its water is believed to cleanse all sins committed over a hundred lifetimes..
