Another "must" visit in your trip to Leh - Ladakh. Beautiful. Famous for its paintings. Located on top on a hill - breath-taking !

One of the more unusual Gompas as it isn't located on a hill and in fact is very difficult to see until you are right inside. The ancient paintings are stunning (no photos allowed) as are the carvings outside.Try to get there early morning or late evening when there are less crowds

This place was amazing! It was built in 1050 CE, and has survived with almost all of its original artwork and structure. It was awe inspiring. It was at the end of a long market place which was very nice too!

Visited this place on my lamayuru visit! This place is a little interior located.! The monastery was closed because of less tourists! Only one small gate was opened to allow visiting the shrine! The main shrine was even opened and we were asked for entry fee!!
