Sankar Gompa

#Monastery in Leh

This Gompa is situated a few kilometers to the north of the town center. This belongs to the Gelug- Pa Sect of Buddhism. It is the official residence of the Kushok Bakul, Ladakh’s head of the Gelug-pa sect. The walls of the monastery are adorned in beautiful paintings. This is one of the most picturesque locations with beautiful carvings and the main building is adorned with a golden spire and a “Dharma Chakra” flanked by two deer, symbolizing the Buddha’s first sermon in Sarnath. This is also one of the most accessible gompas and hence there are restricted visiting hours for tourists.
