The palace looks very beautiful from a distance but it really doesnt have anything there. Its more like an empty vitrified brick building apart from the royal temple there where you can see Buddha idols & a worshipping place. The views from the palace are...More

It looks better from the outside. The only plus of the actual palace is some nice spots where you have a good look of the Leh. The Palace is otherwise VERY dirty and smelly. Most of the rooms are empty with no décor and a...More

The Leh Palace is located in the heart of the city. The old wonder is now in ruins. It offers amazing view of entire Leh city and around. It has nine levels.

Skip this one. Lots of stairs, dimly lit interior areas, not much to see--displays are generic photos of india and area, poor maintenance, altogether, a waste of time

This place is a tourist attraction. I feel it could have been better maintained however it is in shambles. Still the view from the Leh place is beautiful. Leh Ladakh is any way a land of discoveries. The monastery inside is well kept and neat.

Seeing the many old homes some with 4 feet high doorways and being exposed to everyday life of the local people makes the hike up to the Palace even more rewarding. Great views of Leh and the surrounding snow covered peaks.
