Easy Walk From Leh
Jun 2018 • Couples
Sankar Monastery is a daughter-establishment of Spituk Monastery and the residence of the Abbot of Spituk. It is located within an easy half-hour walk from Leh. It is a relatively modern, attractive cluster of buildings set amongst trees above the town, in the lee of the Khardung La Pass behind Leh leading to the Shyok and Nubra Valleys.

Scenic location
Jun 2018 • Couples
Sankar Monastery is located about 2 km away from Leh such that tourists can visit the Gompa easily on foot. The Sankar Monastery belongs to the Gelukpa sect of Buddhism. The monastery remains open from 7 am to 10 am and 5 pm to 7 pm. If you plan to visit the Sankar Gompa then you are going to experience the best of nature’s creations as the surrounding of the monastery shares the marvellous beauty of Himalayas.

An old monastery
Aug 2018 • Couples
When we visited them it was closed for lunch and we were tired to wait for an hour. So could not see it from inside. It is a small monastery, nice painting on the wall, dont forget the private museum just outside the monastery about the different stones available in Leh and the history of all such stones.

Magical and moving.

Well worth hunting down in the upper valley of Leh. A smaller gompa compared with many, but with a moving and spiritual atmosphere that seems ancient.

An attractive Monastery

This is hardly half an hour walk from Leh town.Open to visitors only in the early morning and evening. The walls are painted in the traditional style. Compared to the bigger monasteries in Thiksey or Diskit, this is small but beautiful. Worth visiting.

Peaceful place in Leh
Aug 2017 • Couples
We had visited this Gompa during our vacation in Leh. This monastery is located in the northern part of Leh amidst peaceful surroundings. This place has limited visiting hours - check before visiting. It is a small but well maintained monastery. No climbing is involved here - so good for senior citizens. I would rate this place average after visiting the magnificent giant gompas in Diskit, Hemis, Thiksey etc.

This was a place we crossed everyday on our way to the market from Sankar. yet we hadn't visited until someone came looking for it and we thought lets venture in and see whats there. Inside was a beautiful monastery. not many monks live here. we were fortunate to have been there with some tourists who were on a guided tour so we found out much more about it than we would have on our own.

Well worth the visit. Bit of climbing but well worth the huffing and puffing with the the reduced oxygen.
