Alchi village in Leh is famous for the existence of one of the oldest monastery in Ladakh, Alchi Monastery. Located on the banks of Indus River, the monastery is also called as Alchi Choskhor. Great translator Rinchen Zangpo is credited as the founder of the monastery and the monuments preserved here dated back to 12th century. It is only the monastery that has been built on a flat ground.

Managed by the monks of Likir Monastery, the monastery houses two main temples including Alchi Du-khang and the Sum-tsek. Besides, the monastery complex also has the Temple of Manjushri, Lotsawa Lha-khang, Lha-khang Soma and 3 Ka-ka-ni (entrance) chortens.

Tourists visiting the monastery should carry a flashlight as there is no electricity inside. Photography is also prohibited inside the monastery.
