There are different kinds of wheels, small and big ones but all of them produces a meloncholy in your minds. The experience is just amazing which cannot be defined. It is spiritual, it is divine. These wheels holds importance in buddhist prayer. They are very harmonious.

You can find the prayer wheels at many places across Leh town. I had experienced rotating the same. It was a peaceful experience. The wheels I rotated were made of wood and metals. And were carved with the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum. It is suggested to recite the mantra while rotating the wheels.

This place is located at an amazing scenic place. You have to climb up a good no of stairs, to reach the top. There is nothing unique apart from the wheel of dharma,

For many Buddhists, the prayer wheel also represents the Wheel of the Law (or Dharma) set in motion by the Buddha. Prayer wheels come in many sizes: they may be small and attached to a stick, and spun around by hand; or... More
