You can feel touched by the divine when walking in the beach park or swimming in Lake Pühajärv.
Namely, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (born in 1935), the leader of the Tibetan people, visited Estonia and Otepää on 3 October 1991. He blessed Lake Pühajärv on the same day. The historical visit is commemorated with a wooden sculpture near the beach in Pühajärv Park.
