Lake Manasarovar

Lake Manasarovar , Chinese: 瑪旁雍錯 ) is a freshwater lake in the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China, near Mount Kailash. The lake is revered a sacred place in four religions: Bön, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.

According to legend, Lake Manasarovara is the lake in which a great Tibetan monk saw the letters "Aha", " Kha", " Mha". These three initials helped the search team to locate the current the 14th Dalia Lama of Tibet. The three initials stand for the province, the district, and the monastery in which the current Dalai Lama was born, i.e. Ahamdho, Khunbum, and Taktser respectively.
