about basgo gompa

One does run out of adjectives in Ladakh! Basgo Monastery is yet another spectacular and dramatic site, which used to be the capital of a branch of the Ladakhi ruling family in the 15th and 16th centuries. Basgo is particularly atmospheric because of its majestic location looking over a gorge and the small quiet oasis of Basgo village, its ruined fortifications isolated and eerie. Among these stand three beautiful shrines, all dedicated to Maitreya. The main temple, high up, hosts some rare original 16th-century murals while the huge Maitreya Buddha himself produces an especially moving feeling. The Ser Zang, also a Maitreya temple, possesses some precious manuscripts in gold and copper dedicated by the famous king Sengye Namgyal.
