Leh Palace

Leh Palace was built by King Sengge Namgyal in the 17th century. The Leh Palace is nine storeys high; the upper floors used to accommodate the royal family, the stables and store rooms were located in the lower floors. The palace is now in ruins.

Leh Palace is an excellent example of the medieval Tibetan architecture. It features inclined buttressed walls and protruding wooden balconies. It has suffered massive destruction by the Kashmiri cannons. The palace is open to the public and the roof provides panoramic views of Leh and the surrounding areas. The mountain of Stok Kangri, part of the Zanskar mountain range, is visible across the Indus valley to the south with the Ladakh mountain range to the north. The Dukhar temple housed on the fourth storey is also worth watching.
