Leh Royal Palace, Leh

2.8
#4 of 33 in Sightseeing in Leh
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Sweeping views make Leh Royal Palace a popular tourist attraction, built in the 17th century as a residence fit for a king--King Sengge Namgyal, in fact. While the exterior seems bare of detail, the interior features numerous exhibit spaces and a small prayer room. The main attraction of this palace remains the roof, offering 360-degree views of the town and the surrounding mountains.

  • This was the first palace in Leh that we were going to so I was keen at exploring whats inside the palace – little did I know that its all empty walls with stairs that lead to the roof top (level 9).....  more »
  • The Leh Palace is located in the heart of the city. The old wonder is now in ruins. It offers amazing view of entire Leh city and around. It has nine levels.  more »
  • Skip this one. Lots of stairs, dimly lit interior areas, not much to see--displays are generic photos of india and area, poor maintenance, altogether, a waste of time  more »

  • The Leh palace is a beautiful palace. I call or beautiful for its rich history and the fact that it situated on a hill top and almost entire town can be seen from there. Being on a hilltop, the palace is visible from the main market and other parts of town. A must visit place in Leh but needs done restoration and proper maintenance.
  • The palace in Leh, the capital of Ladakh, is the picture postcard of the region. An architectural marvel, 9 stories high, it sits forlorn as the world around it changes dramatically. A change that was wrought when the will of one man from the distant plains of India caused ripples in history that shaped the folds of geography in this soul grabbing Himalayan region. लेह पैलेस राजा 'सेंगे नामग्याल' द्वारा 17वीं शताब्दी में बनाया गया था. ये 9 मंज़िला महल है. लेह में कई ऐतिहासिक जगहें हैं. ये महल और इसके आस-पास की ख़ूबसूरती देखने लायक है.
  • The accessibly sections of the palace are well maintained. The whole city of Leh can be seen from the top. A cab ride to the palace would be recommended as it's quite a distance unless you're keen on spending half your day getting here from the city.
  • One of the highest building when built. This nine storey Palace has easy approach. Hire a cab for city tour. Although it's a empty Palace but rich in history
  • Good place. It is a monastry basically. The night view of Leh town from the palace is beautiful.
