Description

This Travelogue traces authors' journey to this remote and holy place, documenting the deeper spiritual significance of their pilgrimage.This beautiful narrative of the pilgrimage is also an indepth study of religious motifs and principles involved in the Yatra.

Lake Manasarovar, an expanse of sparkling blue water sprawling over several miles, and the snow-clad Mount Kailash are considered by Hindus to be the centre of the universe. The holy lake is believed to be the seat of Brahma the Creator, and Mount Kailash the abode of Lord Shiva and his consort, Parvati. The entire area covering many thousand mile is an oasis of peace and serenity.

The book also serves as a practical guide to the intrepid traveller.
