Lamayuru is located in western Ladakh in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The place is famous for its interesting tourist spots. Tourists who visit Ladakh tend to visit Lamayuru as a rule, mainly in order to visit the monastery that is located in the region.

The town of Lamayuru is situated at a distance of 127 km from the town of Leh, and it has a very spectacular gompa, that is located in a very serene setting. The place houses the Kagyupa Monastery, which is one of the oldest Buddhist monasteries in the world. This monastery is located near a beautiful lake, with the huge mountains providing an intimidating background. Built during 10th century, the monastery is quite large even by today’s standards and it currently accommodates more than 150 monks.

The monastery has been rebuilt many times, and this can plainly be seen in its architecture. Frescoes, murals, shrines and thangkas adorn the walls of the monastery, and you can take a look at these during your trip to Lamayuru. You can also visit Wanla Gompa, by taking a small trek from Lamayuru to the nearby region of Padum.
