is located in Western Tibet, at an altitude of (4572Meters) above sea level. It is the holiest lake for both Hindus and Buddhists, conceived from the mind of God. It is the mentral creation of Samvara or Demchok in Tibetan, a wrathful meditational deity who is the Buddhist Tantric aspect of great compassion. For Tibetan Bon followers, whose custom it is to circumambulate anti-clockwise, it is the mental creation of Lord Tonpa Shenrab. For Hindus, it is the mental creation of Shiva, the destroyer of evil. Jains also hold lake Mansarovar sacred.
