“Not really a tourist attraction...”
Review of Jama Masjid - Leh

It's not really a tourist attraction, unless if you are a Muslim I suppose. It was quite interesting to see a mosque amongst all the monasteries and prayer wheels

Visited April 19, 2013 (Winter~ Spring Transition)

During your first day in Leh when you are still trying to acclimatize and yet you dont want to waste time by staying in the hotel, you will see this masjid in the main bazaar.

Beautiful carvings but not something that will last for several weeks or days at least. Since you are in Leh, try to visit this place. Constructed during 1666-1667 A.D

This is a good filler/time killer for open schedules and escape from Buddhist monasteries.

This is a Masjid, a Muslim area, and thus cultural and religious respect must be given to the site.

I think this is one place which will provide you a break from monastic overdose in Leh, which almost all tourist feel.

The mosque is believed to be an ancient heritage in Leh. The stone carving in the mosque is awesome. Definitely a place t visit while in Leh.
