Sankar Monastery is along the road with a cluster of other monasteries worth a view. This is a relatively smaller monastery-- but still worth a visit.

While it's not one of the more famous monasteries in the area, it is quite an interesting and charming one. It's away from the main part of Leh in a very quiet area. I like to go in and meditate there. Be sure to go upstairs and also onto the roof.

Not accessible as there are a lot of steps up to the entrance.

unpretentious workaday monastery that exudes atmosphere without too many tourists. At least in June. Too many monasteries are exacting entry fees these days which is good for upkeep but not sure its in the true spirit

Sankar Gompa is a royal monastery 3km from Leh in its outskirts. It has a very small gate to enter the premises. It is the seat of Yellowhat Buddhist tradition. It has a formidable collection of miniature statues of pure gold and wall paintings. It is a daughter establishment of SPITUK MONASTERY. There are a few steps to reach main hall. Outside, it has a lot of protector paintings as in all monasteries. Opposite to it, is residence of KUSHOK BAKULA. There are a lot of expensive thangkas. Normally this is covered on 1st day of arrival in Leh in evening in most of the planned tours. There is an entry ticket of Rs. 20. Timings are 7 to 10 am and 5 to 7pm. Photography is allowed but without flash.
