These monatery actually defines Leh. We were not aware of the Buddhism followed in this province. Its absolutely different from the regular Monastery. The Future Buddha concept was absolutely new concept. Do your studies before going there.

What can I say about the worship place, you have to be there to feel the culture, it was a different & a unique experience, you have to visit the places to feel it.

Very nice monastery with a stunning backdrop. The location is awesome. This is a huge monastery with lots of steps. But the climb is worth it. You can spend 2-3 hours easily in this place.
