Not sure, but somehow I felt that this will be a place which is not thronged by tourists and will get to savour the sights and sounds of the place and be one with the serenity and silence that I typically associate with a monastery. Likir monastery lived up to that expectation I had. What was particularly interesting is that... More

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. Outside is a large Bouddha, but the statues and wall paintings inside are far more interesting. Our guide explained a number of artefacts that were exhibited in the... More

It is a gold statue and sitting on top of a monastery. It is ok not to spend too much time here, 20 minutes will be enough.

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
