about phuktal monastery

Unique and mesmerising, the Phuktal Monastery in Ladakh is sure to take your breath way. Built on the mouth of a hill, this spectacular monastery is truly a sight to behold. Said to be established in the 12th century by Gangsem Sherap Sampoz, the monastery houses close to 70 monks.
The monastery is considered to be the oldest monastery in the region and it holds significant relics suggesting the same. A hollow cave within the cave is believed to have healing water and is much revered by locals in the small village. Besides overwhelming natural beauty surrounding the monastery, the intricate carvings and brilliant architecture will bedazzle you.

Visit the monastery for a memorable experience and admire the sheer brilliance of art and natural beauty.
