This Thangka shows us the story of the creating of Kathmandu Valley. In Nepal the Bodhisattva Manjushri is considered as the founder of Nepalese civilisation and the creator of Kathmandu Valley.

According to the tradition, he was a Chinese Saint. His intuition told him of the blue flame on a lotus in the big lake of Nepal. He went there to offer worship, but could not reach because of the water. Het cut with his sword the southern wall of the hills. The water of the lake drained to the south. The dry valley became the Kathmandu Valley. The holy place is called today Stupa of Sayambunath.
