Awesome location, it is situated right near the main square of the city. A glorious symbol of religious forbearance and magnanimity, it blends in seamlessly with the spiritual and religious force field of Leh. It gives you different view from Buddhist Monasteries. Jama Masjid is open only to men. A beautiful, stately double domed structure is worth watching.

Althouth this is not a turist attraction, but due to its location you spent 10015 minutes to see the presence of Muslim culture there. This masjid is located Just in a corner of Main Market from where you can treck to leh palace. You can see the beautiful stone carving. The Masjid is open Only for Men.

It's not really a tourist attraction, unless if you are a Muslim I suppose. It was quite interesting to see a mosque amongst all the monasteries and prayer wheels

Visited April 19, 2013 (Winter~ Spring Transition) During your first day in Leh when you are still trying to acclimatize and yet you dont want to waste time by staying in the hotel, you will see this masjid in the main bazaar.

I think this is one place which will provide you a break from monastic overdose in Leh, which almost all tourist feel.

Situated in the heart of the Leh city is the Jama Masjid, the favorite mosque of Sunni Muslims in Leh and surrounding villages. Constructed during 1666-1667 A.D as per agreement between the then ruler of Ladakh Deldan Namgyal and the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, the mosque is believed to be an ancient heritage in Leh. With beautiful stone carving, it is... More
