About Book :
As per, Hindu Scriptures, significance of Kailash-mansarovar yatra is immense. Kailash is considered as abode of Shiva-Parvati. The peak of Kailash is the most beautiful among all other peaks.
Kailash Peak has been center of devotion from ancient times for the Devas, Danavas, Yakshas, Kinners, Vidyadharas, Gandharvas, Apsaras, yogis, Munis, Siddhas, Tapes and humans. A lot of pilgrims visit Kailash-Mansarovar every year. It is our bad luck that today kailash-Mansavroverbelongs to china and Tibet. Therefore, these days only a few pilgrims can visit Kailash-Mansarovar with permission of Chinese authority. As a person always pine for visiting his birth place, devotes of Lord Shiva are always eager to visit Kailash-Mansarovar. All the time, they dream of visiting this place.
