Monasteries in Leh, Ladakh

Likir Monastery is located about 52 Kms away from Leh. It is also known as Klu-Kkhjil. The gompa was founded in the 11th century AD and in the 15th century it was rededicated to another monastic order. Though the earlier gompa was destroyed in fire the new one was built in 18th century. The gumpa encloses large clay idols of Buddha. One can spot some of the ancient manuscripts as well.
