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

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