Monasteries of Ladakh

While some people are intrigued by the awe-inspiring desert mountainscape of Ladakh, there are some, who find a calling in the monasteries of Ladakh. The monasteries of Ladakh situated in several scenic pockets of the Himalayan hills, valleys and mountains have been beckoning the spirituality seekers since time immemorial with their monastic lifestyle. Ladakh beams with the radiance of not only the sun rising from behind the majectic snow peaks but also with the radiance of the golden Gompas and its enlightened monks and nuns. But then again, Ladakh monasteries are not just about spirituality. These buildings are repositories of several fascinating things of archaeological interest. Most of these gompas of Ladakh are years old and within their sacred walls they have preserved some of the ancient most Thangka art, artifacts and paintings. Therefore, most monasteries are open to the tourists to come and admire their collections of art and architecture and at the same time get a close view of their spiritual lifestyle. The popular monasteries to visit in Leh and Ladakh are Hemis gompa, shanti stupa, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa, Sankar Gompa, Lamayuru Monastery, Shey Monastery, Alchi Gompa, Likir Monastery, Spituk Monastery and Thiksey Monastery.
