The pyramid shaped Mount Kailash or Mount Kailasa is a holy mount situated in the far region of Tibet in China. Mount Kailash is also known as Meru Parvat (India) and Gang Rinpoche (Tibet) and Gangdisi Shan (Chinese). The 21,778 feet high mountain is considered to be one of the holiest mountains in the world for Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and Bon religions.. Mount Kailash is the source for many rivers including four important rivers the Ganges, the Brahamputra, the Sutlej and the Indus river.

According to Hindu mythology Mount Kailash is the home to the mightiest God Shiva, who is considered to be the god of destructions. In Hindu religion, the holy Mount Kailash is regarded as the ultimate destination for soul. In Hindu Puranas, Mt. Kailash is considered to be the spiritual centre and a pillar for the world. It is believed that the four faces of holy Mt. Kailash are made of crystal, ruby, gold and lapis lazuli. Not only this, but it is also said that the four rivers flowing from Mt. Kailash divide the world into four quarters. Some tradition in Hindu mythology also consider Mount Kailash as Shiva’s linga and Lake Manasarovar as the yoni of his consort.

For Jain religion, Kailash is known as Meru Parvat and the mountain near Mt. Kailash is known as Ashtapad, a mount where the founder of Jain faith Rishabhdeva attained liberation from rebirth. Every year, thousands of Jain pilgrims travel to Mount Kailash and Ashtapad and attain circumambulation of Mt. Kailash to remove their sins and bring good fortune.

Tantric Buddhists, call mount Kailash Gang Rinpoche and believe that mount Kailash is the dwelling place Demchok (or Chakrasamwara). In Buddhism, it is considered that Mount Kailash is a sacred mountain and the abode of Chakra Samvara and Guru Rinpoche who brought Buddhism to Tibet and beyond.

In all these religions and many other religions around the world it is considered that paying a visit to this holy land and completing the kora (circumambulation) of mount Kailash is a lifetime achievement.
