"In the House of Stone and Light" is a song by British musician Martin Page. The song was released in July 1994 from the album of the same name. The song peaked at number 14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart in 1995[1] and reached number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.[2]

The mountain in the intro of the song is Mt. Kailas, located near the land of Shambhala. The present Mt. Kailash in Tibet is linked with the history of the Ramayana.

Page also refers to the Havasupai name of the Grand Canyon, "the house of stone and light", in the lyrics and the title; the Grand Canyon is where the Havasupai tribe considers its tribal land to be and is sacred to the tribe.
