The palace is the actual residence of the royal family of Ladakh. The price of admission gets you entery into several rooms of the palace including the temple, and the kitchen, both jewels in their own right. On display were royal jewelry, costumes and arms. Very worthwhile, and only a short distance from Leh!

The artifacts and tangkas are well maintained. We found the jewelery and ceremonial clothes worn by the royalty interesting. Good to visit if you have time but you would not miss a lot if you skip it.

The museum was a good place to know about the dynasty that ruled Ladakh region and Leh city. The articles are still in original shape and condition. the place could have been better lighted up.
