Leh Palace

Leh Palace in Leh

The Leh palace stands as a testimony to the war fought between the people of Leh and king of Kashmir. It was the old inhabited place of Royal king. It is located very near, rather inside the main city, so better to take a walk. The view from the top of 9th storey building is very good- the distant cirque, or the glacier is breathtaking, even you can easily see the mud-coloured homes from above clearly.

"The view of the city and the mountains surrounding it is simply mesmerising and makes for a perfect place for landscape photography. The palace in itself isn't very interesting as all the rooms are empty and there is nothing notably interesting to see in the palace, barring the small monastery. Can be visited if you have enough time on your hands, but if you're packed and there for a shirt trip, there are much, much better places to visit in Ladakh. "

"Interesting structures ranged around the palace’s base include the prominent Namgyal Stupa , the colourfully muralled Chandazik Gompa and the 1430 Chamba Lhakhang with medieval mural fragments between the inner and outer walls. Don't count on any of these being open."
