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.

  • Amazing place. A never miss if you are in Leh market. Leave early in the morning for the Leh market and first visit there. A good meal after that will be a cherished memory forever. Don't go after eating, it'll make you feel breathlessness and nausea.
  • Loved the place! A piece of history that has a royal vibe and peaceful feel. Although there's not much left to explore within the palace, the scenic views of the Leh City that it provides beautifully make up for it! It's definitely worth a visit!
  • Better to visit this place at morning. At least 2 hours is needed to roam around the whole palace. Parking is little far. You have to walk 500 m after getting down from car to reach the palace. You can see the whole city fron the top of the palace. Calm and peaceful area. Local people are very well behaved. Enjoy Leh palace.
  • An old palace. Made of mud and stones and wood. Good place to click photos. Low on light inside. Read information before visit. Not much is available on the spot.
  • Beautiful palace built on a hill.. From top levels here, you get a panoramic view of Leh city.. A very unique ancient architectural heritage site.. Small corridors, maze like pathways, picturesque backdrop..There are 9 levels/storey in this palace.. It has a museum too.. Well a beautiful place for photography. The wood carvings , small doors, tacky wooden staircase, and rustic walls, provides a vintage look in pictures!!! P. S- I would suggest, without delay reach top level first than, start clicking pictures and view palace and then come down!!! One more thing it has timings, it will be better if you reach during late-noon or evening like 4-5... Make sure sun doesn't set.
