    Large imposing monastery. Very sure. The monastery also has a museum with all kinds of Buddhist artifacts.

    It is the biggest monastery in Ladakh. Built in 1672 is the spiritual center of the monks. The large central courtyard. The statue of the Guru Lhakhang is 8 m high. It runs in every part, including terraces, there is also a nice Museum and a souvenir shop. It's probably the monastery that I liked the most.

Where to stay in Jammu City

Budget-friendly accommodation options lie throughout Jammu City--mostly pilgrim guesthouses with dormitory-style rooms situated near the main train station, around Vinaik Bazaar, and in some of the temple complexes. You can also opt for one of the small but modern mid-range hotels, in close proximity to the riverbank. If visiting in summer, try to book ahead, as the hotels and guesthouses can be full during the holy month of Shraavana.
