The animistic religions of earlier nomadic hunting and gathering hill tribes have always seen extraordinary natural phenomena, such as waterfalls, hot springs, old trees especially, and so on, as sacred from time immemorial. In addition to sacred sites and places in nature, of course, there are also the innumerable religious buildings: all the temples, monasteries and Buddhist shrines (Chorten), which, unlike in Tibet, escaped destruction in the Indian and Nepalese Himalayas. Many of them are centuries, if not millennia old. All these places exude an unforgettable magic, that leaves no one untouched, and directs ones attention towards one’s inside - away from the stress and the cool expedience of the western daily life.
The Hindus built their temple almost always in places, where once something extraordinary, something magical or mystical had happened. Each temple has its own story - as for example, that one of the many Hindu gods performed a special miracle at this place, or continues to do so.
Buddhist shrines usually refer to historical persons, who had meditated in special places, often in caves. It is believed, that these places were especially blessed by their presence, and therefore have healing powers. Here has to be mentioned, among many others, especially the yogi Milarepa and Guru Padmasambhava. The latter has left foot- and handprints in rock in the eastern Himalayas, which are still revered today.
