Central Asian Museum Leh-Hidden Heritage

#Museum in Leh

One of Leh’s most remarkable buildings, this tapered four-storey stone tower is a 21st-century construction based on a historic Lhasa mansion, with the added flourish of a fortress-style drawbridge. Inside, exhibits are relatively limited but the top floor Faces of Ladakh mini-photoessays are thought-provoking.

The museum hides in a courtyard that also contains Leh’s oldest mosque, a traditionally styled Ladakhi show-kitchen and a small exhibition hall. Sadly, a dispute between the land owners and the fund that built the museum means access can prove tricky. There are even rumours that the whole structure could be demolished to create a shopping centre. So see it while you can. Even from the outside the site is worth a look.
