Stok Palace belongs to the Namgyal dynasty of Ladakh region and was the summer home for them. It contains all the necessary elements of any royal home, wardrobe, utensils, artefacts and trophies. A must-see place while visiting Ladakh.

We spent a lot of time here and enjoyed seeing this palace. Must have been tough to bring the construction items to build this. Amazing architecture.

Located 17km from Leh city, this former royal palace is a blend of traditional and contemporary architectural styles. It is a stone structure created without using any cement. In several areas, renovation work is still in progress. There are artefacts, relics, royal seals, regal costumes,...More

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.

This is a part of Hemis Monastery and you will be surprised to see that other than things of Buddhist interest, there are even swords in it. Quite interesting

A place to see Rich Ladakhi culture. It is a small museum with intriguing collection of Buddhist art, weaponry, coins, seals, thangka paintings, other items from the royal household, but the best of the lot are Queen's ceremonial jewellery and ceremonial headgear of the rulers....More

You may visit if you have time and interest. We liked it. This place tells you Ladakh's royalty, infact royal family lives here hence many parts are private and restricted.
