Mani Wall

Mani walls are made up of Mani stones, rocks and pebbles on which almost always the six-syllable Buddhist mantra 'om mani padme hum' is carved or engraved. They are intentionally placed along roadsides, paths or rivers to form mounds or walls as devotional offerings to spirits or places.

Mani stones are placed along lakeshores, on mountain passes, and at village entrances as a way to worship the deities that are believed to give guidance and protection. It is also believed that their passing through the wall causes the mantras to rise into the sky, creating a positive effect.
