No photo available!
The monastery Namgyal Tsemo Gompa is placed in the backdrop of Leh palace. King Tashi Namgyal, one of the Namgyal rulers constructed this Gompa in 1430. The Gompa is placed in a steep hill overseeing the whole city. An amazing statue in gold of the Maitreya Buddha as high as three storey together with many idols and Buddhist scriptures are attractive to visitors.

It also enshrines nearly 10 feet high of statues of Manjushri and Avaloketesvara. The splendid view from the top is worth viewing and alone is well worth for a tourist. Bike or a car is a convenient option to reach the Gompa, also one can make a decent trek from Leh market, which approximately will take 30 minutes. An ancient fort, which is in ruins at present, is an attraction nearby.
To visit and experience Jammu and Kashmir hassle-free, view jammu tour packages.
