Discovering the Tenzin Sangqiu Spring: A Sacred Site in Shigatse

The Mystical Tenzin Sangqiu Spring

Located on the northern slope of Nyima Mountain, west of Shigatse city, the Tenzin Sangqiu Spring is a revered natural wonder. The spring water is known for its sweet and refreshing taste. Local legends claim that drinking from this spring can cure illnesses, ward off disasters, and repel evil, leading the locals to cherish it as “holy water.”

Cultural Significance and Local Beliefs

A popular local saying goes, “When the Venus star shines in the sky, there’s no need to see a doctor for sickness.” This reflects the deep-rooted belief in the spring’s healing powers. Every year, around mid-July of the Tibetan calendar, coinciding with the appearance of the Venus star, a unique tradition unfolds.

Annual Pilgrimage and Rituals

During this time, people flock to the Tenzin Sangqiu Spring carrying barley wine, butter tea, and food offerings. They perform rituals to honor “Nis Pha,” a revered deity. The pilgrims engage in various activities such as lighting incense, drinking from the spring, washing their faces and heads, and collecting water to take back home or share with friends and family.

This pilgrimage and the associated rituals at Tenzin Sangqiu Spring are not just about seeking physical healing but also represent a spiritual journey for many. It’s a time for community gathering, reinforcing cultural bonds, and celebrating the deep connection between nature and spirituality in Tibetan culture.

Visiting Tenzin Sangqiu Spring offers a unique insight into the rich traditions and beliefs of Tibet. It’s an opportunity to experience a blend of natural beauty, spiritual reverence, and cultural heritage in the heart of Shigatse.
