The Monastery is beautiful, you climb up a little bit and there u find a big statue of Buddha. The area around is quite peaceful and good to spend some time meditating if you like indulging in it.

One of the reasons of a high rating by me is that we were allowed to make pictures here (without using flash), which is often not the case in other old temples.

Its a monastery which is situated on Leh Kargil road, around 50 kms far from Leh. If visiting Leh, one should definitely visit this monastery, it is a very peaceful and calm area, away from the hustle bustle of the city. If you are looking for meditation, do try this place

This place can be visited during your visit to Alchi. This monastery also has huge Buddha idol similar to Diskit one. You can give it a miss if you have already visited Diskit monastery as the view from there is more beautiful.
