The museum over here is real good. But it is bit interior and placed in a village side and you will get a wonderful view to see lush green village from top of the monastry.

While our return from Pangong lake, we visited this monastery on the way. Beautiful farms of the village welcome you before you start on the winding roads to the main monastery. Views from the top of monastery are excellent.
