Sankar Monastery

Sankar Monastery

Back To Leh

If you are interested to visit a Buddhist Monastery, Sankar Gompa is the best place to go to. You can enjoy the calmness and discipline of a monk’s life here. The monastery is famous for the amazing figure of Avalokitesvara with 1000 heads and 1000 arms. The double door leading to the assembly hall, three green drums and ornately painted walls are some of the few curious sights inside the building. The rules for the monks, mandalas, and Tibetan calendar are some of the depictions that adorn the wall. You can spend some time in meditation in the monastery and leave with a calmness that you have never known before.
