This is a mosque in the middle of the Leh Bazar.. perhaps the history of why and how the mosque came up here is more interesting than the mosque itself.

Well maintained and sufficiently warm. Nice interior and people are quite friendly. Hot water is not available (atleast not when I went there).

A gentle stroll at any time of the day is wonderful, from early morning until late in the evening the whole place thrives on the energy of the vendors and shop keepers. There is always something exciting and fun that will catch your eye.

The most interesting thing about the mosque when one views from the main Leh market is the Monastry which one sees in contrast to it. Its a very centralized place of worship for the Muslim community of Leh.

The mosque is one of the more beautiful in India, and it makes a great picture with the Leh palace in the background.
