LAKE MANSAROVAR (MAPAM YUMCO)
TIBET
Lake Manasarovar (Mapam Yumco)  or Manasa Sarovar/Lake Manas, is a freshwater lake in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China 940 kilometres (580 mi) from Lhasa. To the west of Lake Manasarovar is Lake Rakshastal; toward the north is Mount Kailash.
  • GEOGRAPHY:-Lake Manasarovar lies at 4,590 metres (15,060 ft) above mean sea level, a relatively high elevation for a large freshwater lake on the mostly saline lake-studded Tibetan Plateau. Despite claims to the contrary, there are hundreds of higher freshwater lakes in the world, including a larger and higher freshwater lake at 4,941 metres (16,211 ft) above sea level and 495 sq km,in size, Angpa Tso (East Chihpuchang Hu), further east on the Tibetan Plateau at 33-24N 90-17E. The largest freshwater lake of its size (290 sq km) over 5000 meters elevation isPumoyong Tso (Pumuoyong Tso), also on the Tibetan Plateau, at 28-34N 90-24E and 5,018 metres (16,463 ft) elevation. Lake Manasarovar is relatively round in shape with the circumference of 88 kilometres (55 mi). Its depth reaches a maximum depth of 90 m (300 ft) and its surface area is 320 square kilometres (120 sq mi). It is connected to nearbyLake Rakshastal by the natural Ganga Chhu channel. Manasarovar is near the source of the Sutlej River which is the easternmost large tributary of the Indus. Nearby are the sources of the Brahmaputra River, the Indus River, and the Karnali River (Ghaghara), an important tributary of the Ganges River.
  • ETYMOLOGY:- The word "Manasarovara" originates from Sanskrit, which is a combination of the words "Manas" "sarovara" manas meaning mind and sarovara meaning lake. According to the Hindu religion, the lake was first created in the mind of the Lord Brahma after which it manifested on Earth.
  • RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE:- 
  1. In Hinduism:- As per Hindu theology, Lake Manasa Sarovar is a personification of purity, and one who drinks water from the lake will go to the Abode of Lord Shiva after death. He is believed to be cleansed of all his sins committed over even a hundred lifetimes. Like Mount Kailash, Lake Manasa Sarovar is a place of pilgrimage, attracting religious people from IndiaNepalTibet and the neighboring countries. Bathing in the Manasa Sarovar and drinking its water is believed to cleanse all sins. Pilgrimage tours are organized regularly, especially from India, the most famous of which is the Kailash Manasa Sarovar Yatra which takes place every year. Pilgrims come to take ceremonial baths in the cleansing waters of the lake. Manasasarovar lake has long been viewed by the pilgrims as being nearby to the sources of four of the greatest rivers of Asia, namely theBrahmaputraKarnaliIndus and Sutlej. Thus it is an axial point which has been thronged to by pilgrims for thousands of years. The region was initially closed to pilgrims from the outside; no foreigners were allowed between 1949 and 1980. After the 1980s it has again become a part of the Indian pilgrim trail.According to the Hindu religion, the lake was first created in the mind of the Lord Brahma after which it manifested on Earth. Hence, inSanskrit it is called "Manasa sarovaram", which is a combination of the words manasa (mind) and sarovaram (lake). The lake, in Hindu religious belief, is also supposed to be the summer abode of theHamsa goose. Considered to be sacred, the Hamsa is an important element in the symbology of the subcontinent, representing wisdom and beauty.
  2. In Buddhism:- Buddhists also associate the lake with the legendary lake known as Anavatapta in Sanskrit and Anotatta in Pali, where Queen Maya is believed to have conceived Buddha. The lake has a few monasteries on its shores, the most notable of which is the ancient Chiu Gompa Monastery built on a steep hill, looking as if it has been carved right out of the rock. The lake is very popular in Buddhist literature and associated with many teachings and stories in Buddhism. Lord Buddha, it is reported, stayed and meditated near this lake on several occasions. Buddhists say that famous Uturu-kuru divaina (island or mountain range) was nearby the Anavatapta vila. However, more evidence shows that Uturu-kuru divaina was the Kuril Islands Kuril Islands, as the Sanskrit meaning of Uturu-kuru is Northern-men as Kur meaning man, in the Ainu language. Lake Manasarovar is also the subject of the meditative Tibetan tradition, "The Jewel Tree of Tibet". A modern narration and description of the meditation was made popular by Robert Thurman.
  3. In Jainism:- As per Jainism Kailash Mansarovar is associated with first Tirthankar Lord Shree Rishabhdev. Ashtapad mountain which is near to the Kailash mountain is a place where Lord Rishabhdevji attained Nirvana (Moksh) with crores of his disciples.

Kankaleswari kali(burdwan,west bengal):

 the temple of ma kankaleswari,temple of godess kali situated near the bunk of river damodar,at kanchan nagar in burdwan.one of the oldest temple of the dist.hear godess kali is in chamunda mata form. Dedicated to Goddess Chamunda, a form of Kali, the Hindu Goddess of death & destruction, the temple is locally known as Kankal Bari ("House of the skeleton", pronounced "Kon-kol-Bari") or Rakta tola ("Temple of blood") .
Location: Kanchanpara, Bardhaman (aka Burdwan),west bengal.
Brief history: it was said that the idol of goddess kali was discovered from the bank of damodar river-bed after a devastating flood in 1923. although many accounts say the temple itself was built around the year AD 1700.
The idol of godess kali(ma chamunda): one of the most unique eg of the ancient architecture of bengal is non other than the idol of godess kankal kali.devi kali is in from of chamunda hear.the idol was engraved in a black stone in such a manner that each and every bone of the body is quite visible,hence the name kankaleswari.The idol is engraved in stone, having eight hands and garlanded with the heads of human beings. Devi holds a trident in her hand, which is supposed to hurt the male idol lying under her legs. The body of the statue is uneven. The construction of this idol may be influenced by the concept of 'tantra'
.
Temple and it's surroundings: The temple is decorated with different patterns of 'terra cota' which is also found in some other visiting places of Bardhaman. In the courtyard surrounding the temple are several smaller Shivalingas.The shrine is entered from three arched entrances, each of which faces one of the three rooms. The temple is topped by nine spires in tradition Bengali style of architecture. The front of the temple is profusely decorated with terracotta panels displaying sages, kings & mendicants. In one corner of the ground where the temple is siyuated, stands another small temple dedicated to Vishnu.Topped by five spires, this temple is brilliantly decorated with terracotta panels.i n both the temples, what I found worth-mentioning is that the terracotta panels ornament only the front face of the temple, the embellishments stop as soon as the front wall ends & the other three walls are simply painted over with no decorations but only very small windows breaking the continuity.

LEGENDS ABOUT BHEMAKALI:

According to a legend, the manifestation of the goddess is reported to the Daksha-Yajna incident when the ear of the Sati fell at this place and became a place of worship as a Pitha - Sthan. Presently in the form of a virgin the icon of this eternal goddess is consecrated at the top storey of the new building. Below that storey the goddess as Parvati, the daughter of Himalaya is enshrined as a divine consort of Lord Siva.

The temple complex has another three temples dedicated to Lord Raghunathji, Narsinghji and Patal Bhairva Ji (Lankra Veer) - the guardian deity.

The temple has an interesting story behind it. It is said that long ago, there were many demons in the Himalayas who were proving to be a major distraction when the priests and saints used to meditate. They all prayed to the Gods above to send a powerful force to wipe the demons off. Hearing their pleas, the Gods decided to concentrate their powers on one point. A huge explosion took place and one could see a small girl child on that spot. This girl child grew up to be the force who destroyed all demons and was supposed to take repeated births to destroy any evil force on the face of the earth. The temple is dedicated to this great female power who was called Bhimakali

HISTORY:

Sarahan was the capital of rulers of former Bushahr State. Bushahr dynasty earlier used to control the state from Kamroo. The capital of state later was shifted to Sonitpur. Later Raja Ram Singh made Rampur as the.

The temple also has interesting tit-bits that are truly intriguing. In the year 1905, a powerful earthquake struck this place and the temple tilted to one side. However, it reclined back to its original shape after another tremor jolted the place! People say that there is a secret tunnel inside the temple that was used to reach a nearby village by the priests. In the year 1927, another temple was built right next to the existing temple, which houses a 200-year-old idol of Goddess Bhimakali.

The famous Bhimakali Temple in Shimla is a very popular tourist attraction. Also known as Bheemakali Temple of Simla, this architectural wonder is one of the representatives of 51 Shakti Peeths.
