Old Monument

According to Buddhist philosophy carving mani on stones is also regard as a meditation, because one who carved Buddhist mantra on plain stone need proper focus and understanding of meaning so it is a kind of meditation too. Local monks or lama construct it on the way or center of village so other local people help them to pile and latter on it grow bigger and biggler as year passes. According to local people, the stone mane found in Tapting village is said to be more than 100 years old. Most of the Himalayan region of Nepal, where Buddhist follower lived, there you will find stone carved small to big size mane on the way.
