about namgyal tsemo gompa

Visible from afar with its distinct brick red colour, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa, a beautiful, serene 15th century monastery, lies further up the Tsemo hill past Leh Palace. Climbing up the steep path worn over the years into the rocky mountain, the Namgyal Tsemo Gompa welcomes you in its serene, spiritual folds. Famed for the gold gilded statue of Maitreya Buddha, also known as Future Buddha who is to follow historical Buddha Sukyamani, the monastery has long lured travelers seeking Buddhist experience only to surprise them with something unexpected- the jaw-dropping view of the expanse of Leh's landscape. Built by King Tashi Namgyal after the invasion of Nubra Valley by Mirza Heder in 1531, Namgyal Tsemo was historically dedicated to the guardian deities who would crush all evil spirits and prevent any further attack on Namgyal dynasty. Today, the guardian deities reside in the monastery's Gongkhang and the fluttering Tibetan prayer flags in and around the monastery lend their own spiritual cadence.
