Meru, the centre of cosmos -the navel or axis of the Earth, a.k.a. Mt. Sumeru etc. According to the Hindu Mythology,the Lord Shiva resides on the summit of Kailash, meditating continuouslyand ensuring the continuity of three aspects of the universe – creation, preservation and destruction. Thus Shiva represents the Trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Mahadeva. Mt. Kailash is thus Shiva personified as it is believed that he takes earthly form in Kailash. It is in the centre of the universe.
