The Holy Rock

FOOTPRINTS OF GURU PADMASAMBHAVA

THE HOLY ROCK

The sacred place in Chungthang is at the ’Holy Rock’. It is associated with a fable that says, the famous Buddhist Saint Guru Padmasambhava visited here and left his footprints on a rock, which are revered by the local people of the State. There is a small opening in the rock through which mineral water keeps flowing. Blessings of the saint are also linked to a paddy field closeby called the ‘Rock’, this small piece of land supports the cultivation of paddy, which otherwise is not possible.
