about yung drung gompa

Its site, perched high above Lamayuru village at the bottom of the valley, is said to have been chosen by the Kashmiri yogi Naropa in the early 11th century. Ask the monk on duty to show you Naropa’s cave. The oldest part of the complex is below the Du-khang and in disrepair. On entering the temple, you see a life-sized image of Vairochana Buddha. There are murals, worn from the passage of time, of mandalas and tantric deities, and a carved doorway somewhat like the ones at Alchi.
