NEW DELHI: One of the most unearthed mysteries lies in the foothills of Mount Kailash. Its legendary tales are travelling since ages and to date, people are perplexed by it. The meaning of Mount Kailash is “precious jewel of eternal snow “and which signifies the eternal significance of this place.

Standing at 6718 meters above sea level, Mount Kailash is considered a very holy site by the Hindus, Jains and Buddhist people.  It is surrounded by four mighty rivers, the Indus, the Sutlej, the Brahmaputra, and the Karnali. One can dive into the breathtaking
charms of this mountain and can unearth the perfect serenity. If we go by the ancient belief, Mount Kailash holds the axis of life and death.

Hindu people believe that Lord Shiva, the destroyer of evil, resides in this mighty peak. The Buddhist stance on this mountain is, Buddha Demchok, who represents supreme bliss, stays at the top of it.

It is one of the very few unconquered mountains, due to its religious sentiments. Even the Chinese government has banned everyone from scaling this sacred mountain. Many people have tried climbing it but ended up never to be found again.

There are many theories going around Mount Kailash, which can perplex anyone. Let’s take a look some of them:

Manmade pyramid
The shape of the Mount Kailash stands unusual and reports surrounding makes sense out of it. As per the research report of Russians scientists, the exceptional shape of this peak is not at all a mountain but an ancient build manmade pyramid. They claim it to have a
pyramidal shape and if this proves to be true then Mount Kailash will be the largest Pyramid known to human civilization.

People also believe that this mountain keeps changing its place and thus whoever tries to climbs it, get lost easily.

The irrational aging
One of the strangest things to be experienced near this place is the mysterious facet of aging. It is been said that here the time duration of twelve hours equals to two weeks spend in any other place of this earth. The length of nails and hair grows too fast and aging process multiplies many folds near Mount Kailash.

There are many other paranormal activities also which have been recorded near this place and goes beyond the explanation of modern science.

The Thesis of Twin Lake
At the bottom of the mountain, there are two adjacent lakes. One is called by the name of the God and Devil’s lake. The saying goes around is that we all have two sides, one as the angel and the other as evil one. The theory is better explained saying that the angel is our
guardian, guiding us with its light of awakening our higher consciousness.

There are much more that goes into the unexplained history of Mount Kailash, which can be further speculated without any proof. Even the Hindu literature have mentioned the existence of such place, thus it verifies the very reality of mountain since ages. There is nothing that can be correlated to the theories of it and hence people believe the age-old ideology of this peak.
