This museum is definitely worth some time to browse and learn about local history. There are numerous ancient thankas on display as well as a variety of royal costumes and jewelry. Artistic metalwork is also shown. The building itself is handsome and attractively presented.

Stok Monastery or Stok Gompa is a Buddhist monastery in Stok, 15 km towards the south of Leh. Around 2 km from the monastery is the Stok Palace and Museum Complex. The Palace offers some spectacular views of the River Indus and the entire valley.

It was our Last stop on the local sight seeing tour of Leh. It gave us a glimpse of the Royal Heritage. Taking evening snacks and sipping on Hot coffee in the cafe is highly recommended.
