The Mansarovar Lake is relatively round in shape with the circumference of 88 kms on the kora path (circumambulation path) and 320 square kilometers in total where the deepest point is 90 meter in the center part. Historically, the lake became holy in Tibetan society because mother of Lord Buddha took by gods to take a bath in the lake until all the sins washed away and purified the body totally, where she saw a white elephant running around the holy mountain (Kailash) as a significant that Buddha was in her worm.. Pilgrims walking around the holy lake takes four five days to make up one full circumambulation, the reason for that they prefer to wash out all the sins and have some good fortunes in their life.
