Don't miss this power place it has a wonderful ambiance that makes you want to linger and enjoy. Leh is a walking town and you'll enjoy seeing and discovering things that no one has ever mentioned in any guide book. Spend more time here than you think you'll need.

A really peaceful place. A short guide is to spin the wheels clockwise. But need not worry as the people there will guide you :)

Important role in Buddhist rituals. You have to spin it clockwise while offering prayer. You find this at all Monastery and public places in Ladakh
