The Treasury of Lives

Kailash, known in Tibet as Gang Tise, is revered as one of the most sacred mountains in the Himalayas for Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and Bon adherents alike. Located in far west Tibet, Kailash and the surrounding region are the focus of several important pilgrimage routes. For Buddhists, the mountain is considered the home of Cakrasaṃvara.
