Architectural Building
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 palace now is a monastery of Buddhist monks. A beautiful place indeed. Situated at thw top of a hill from where the Leh city can be seen with a panoramic view.
  • It's a very grand palace but it has a very simple architecture and design. From top of the palace offer nice view of the entire Leh city
  • 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.
  • Best Place to visit in Leh .. good location to see the city .. and worth visiting to watch the monastery witin the palace
  • Leh palace is the landmark of Leh. This ancient wooden palace is majestic and offers good aerial view of Leh and the nearby snowclad mountains. The palace has prayer rooms, wooden staircases, gompa and long steps. The palace is open from sunrise to sunset with an entry fee of Rs. 5. I visited the Leh palace during the sunrise time and the view is splendid. Climbing the small hill causes panting due to lack of Oxygen. Acclimatisation is required, if you are planning high altitude treks in Leh.
