Although a little far away from Leh town, its worth seeing for the wonderful architecture,The ancient murals are very attractive. The giant seated statue of Buddha should not be missed.

The views from the monastery are too good, so is the Giant Budha statue. The monasteries might look the same, but each one is different in its own way. The main budha is also different in different places. Club the trip to this monastery with that of Alchi.

This was the third Monastery I Visit on my trip to Ladakh. The monastery is well kept and maintained and it is hard to believe that it has a history of more than 1000 years.

The Likir Monastery is very beautiful monastery and its worth its drive.. It is situated far up the hills and one can drive right up to the monastery. The big buddha statue is beautiful and is well visible from the main road..

This is one of my favourite monasteries east of Leh. Looks great from a distance and better close up. Interiors of the various temples and the small museum are nothing particularly special. View of the surrounding area is also very good. Worth seeing as part of a day trip from Leh to see the eastern monastery circuit.
