Matho Monastery, with the history of five hundred years and the only monastery under the Saskya monastic Establishment in Leh, is located 26 km from the city on the beautiful Indus River valley. Believed to be established by Lama Dugpa Dorje, a famous Lama in Buddhist Monarchy, the monastery houses worthy marvelous collection of ancient thankas, especially some in the form of mandalas.

Another attraction here is a holy shrine dedicated to the guardian deities. Matho Nagrang festival is conducted annually here in this Monastery (first half of March); during the festival Buddhist monks perform many traditional rituals and sacred dances.

This is a nice monastery to visit and understand Buddhist ideologies and teachings. Tourists can easily access through taxis or car. Stakna Gompa is also a nearby attraction which is not to be missed.
