Ladakh is mostly inhabited by people of Tibetan descent, which makes that region a very rich in Buddhist temples, monasteries, gompas…
Some of them have been founded in the 11th century. Few are in ruins while others are still inhabited by monks and ordinary people.
It has been an amazing experience to be there and see how they live!
Hemis Monastery, Spituk Monastery, Thiksey Monastery, Stok Gompa, Shey Gompa, Phyang Monastery, Lamayuru Monastery – most of the photos have been taken in those places.
It may take a moment to load all of them.
