Located just 3 km from Leh city is the eye-catching monastery Sankar Gompa. Known for its excellent architecture, the Gompa houses an impressive representation of Avalokitesvara complete with 1000 arms and 1000 heads.

Managed by twenty monks, the monastery is the official residence of Kushok Bakul, the head of one of the Buddhists sect, Gelug-pa sect. This monastery is crowned with a spire made in gold and a dharma charka, symbolizing the first oration of Buddha in Sarnath.

One can get there either by car/bike or on foot. Leh Palace and Namgyal Tsemo Gompa are few adjoining attractions that can be visited.
