The sacred flame (Karthikai mahadeepam) atop Mount Arunachala(Tiruvannamalai), Tamilnadu

As one of the most dramatic features of the natural landscape, mountains have an extraordinary power to evoke spirituality and sanctity. The mountains are held sacred for the following reasons:

  • Mountains have traditionally been regarded as abodes of Gods. For example, Mount Kailasha (at Tibet) is regarded as the abode of Lord Shiva.

  • Some mountains are also held sacred due to their association with deities, mythology or legends. For example, Mount Govardhana at Brindavana is revered for its association with Lord Krishna.

  • Mountains are also held revered as places of spiritual attainment.
