All reviews potala palace indus valley maitreya buddha tibetan buddhism dalai lama future buddha main temple souvenir shop butter tea beautiful statue prayer hall wall paintings peaceful place hill top must visit place leh city monastery
This one of two amazing monasteries on Leh-Manali road. The other being Hemis monastery. As with most ancient monasteries Thikset is on top of a hill, is about 20 km from Leh. It is noted for its resemblance to the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet...More
the best view of the monastery is when u enter from the main road. make sure u stop and take some pictures there. the monastery is pretty standard tibetian style and it is a good stop, coming from thanglangla to leh.
A must visit in a Leh trip, this old but well maintained monastery presents the huge statue of Maitreya or the future Buddha which looks really magnificent & truly divine. The souvenir shop also has a good collection of presentation articles at a reasonable price.
