Four Faces Of Mount Kailash

Four Faces Of Mount Kailash

Kailash the huge establishment of faith, religion, spirituality, hope and love to the almighty locate itself in the center of the earth spreading the wisdom and love to all the nooks and corners. The great Kailash has a huge fondness to the number ‘4’. The Kailash is the home of four great religions of this world; Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Bon religion. The four rivers Sutlej, Brahmaputra, Karnali and Indus emerge from the divine Kailash in the four different directions dividing the world into four parts.

And this is not the end, Mansarovar Kailash is also known for its four eminent faces. So steep and sharp, all the edges of each face is strictly oriented to the cardinal points which means that each face is perfectly facing one of the directions completely on axis. According to a narrative in the Puranas, it is said that each face of Kailash is made of a different Jewel, Crystal, Ruby, Gold and Lapis Lazuli. The north is gold, the south is Lapis Lazuli, the east is crystal and the west is ruby. It is said that the four faces of Kailash depicts four different emotions. The southern face reflects majesty or splendor and it is fully covered with snow. The western face embraces the aura of compassion and benevolence. The northern face is stark, forbidding and daunting, while the eastern, only visible from a long way off, is mysterious and distant. During the 3 days of Parikarma all the faces are seen completely.

And all these mysterious and distinguished faces make it nearly impossible to ascend the great Kailash.

Ashwani Kumar

Om Har Har Mahadev! It was divine! It was mystical! It was magical! And the best part, it was, a comfortable and very smooth journey to Mount Kailash Bhole Few things command more respect hard work, integrity, dedication and the ability to follow through. These are among the many attributes we experienced from start to finish when organizing our trip to Kailash Mansarovar with Trip to Temple. This travel agency is an excellent listener and pays attention to detail; a lost quality in today’s world. I must say that thanks to Vikas Mishra along with his team. Our two-week journey through Kailash Mansarover significantly exceeded all of our expectations. To us, even important than a great relationship between the tour company and the is the one between the travel company's staff and their preferred services, like hotels, tour guides, drivers, etc. to temple provide all these services.

Highly Satisfied


We took the services of 'Trip To Temples' for our pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar from 23.05.18 to 05.06.18. We are highly satisfied with the facilities and the arrangements made by the Travel group. The guide and all other associated people of the group were highly cooperative and well-informed. Daily briefing was done to us and mandatory daily medical checks were also done satisfactorily. Everything from food to the medical facilities extended were par excellent, with a special mention of the food which was pure Jain food and tasted just like home food. The programme was very well designed in all aspects. We did not face any problem in stay arrangements except at Mansarover where we faced some problem as the bus had got stuck on the way and reached late. Mr. Manish of 'Trip To Temple' guided us really well and was very prompt in answering all our queries for the preparations prior to the journey. The videography of our entire trip done exclusively for our group was really a wonderful experience and the video was also telecast on Soham TV. We recommend this group's services to all. Thanks to Trip To Temple for such a rememberable lifetime journey.
