When Tonpa Shenrab (the founder of Bon religion) visited to Tibet in first time from Tagzig Wolmo Lungring he washed himself in the lake. The lake is very popular in Buddhist literature and associated with many teachings and stories. Buddha, it is reported, stayed and meditated near this lake on several occasions.
