1. Darchok

There are two different types of prayer flags. Horizontal (known as Lungta) and Vertical (known as Darchok) prayer flags spread peace and prosperity and are meant to be hung outside fluttering in the wind. Darchok translates to flagstaff and originates in the Amdo region of Tibet. It is most commonly placed in the ground, on top of mountains or on rooftops.

The main significant difference between the vertical and horizontal flags is that if there are no trees or structures to hang the vertical flags, it is easier to plant the vertical flag instead.

About Prayer Flags

Prayer Flags are auspicious flags that contain images of deities, mantras, and prayers, which are traditionally believed to bring happiness, peace, prosperity, good fortune, health and victory over the obstacles. Prayer Flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom.

Prayers inscribed on prayer flags protect from destructive evils and obstacles toward the flag planter and all sentient being. Tibetans believe that the prayers and mantras will be blown upwards as an offering to their deities and will bring fortune, happiness and good health to all who hang them.
