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.

  • Good place for city views. But nothing much more. No guides to explain the place. Do it because you are in Leh.  more »
  • If you are history lover you like it, it is in centre of leh, and very nominal entry fee for palace, it is open for full day. I suggest Pl go for ones. From the palace you see very nice view of leh.  more »

  • Amazing architectural design. Though it has numbers of rooms but some are too dark. It's a nine-storey monument (Leh Palace) under renovation, opened for visitors across the globe... You will know how the king used to keep an eye on the kingdom when you reach level ninth floor... Beautiful view of the city from the top, don't miss it...
  • Historical place marked my the Archaeological Survey of India. It was built in the 16th century. The architecture is remarkable. Every little design has a reason behind it. It overlooks the town of Leh. It is cool inside; hence a jacket is recommendable. A documentary is shown about the Leh Palace.
  • An old and spooky palace is a delight for visitors who are interested in understanding the old ladakhi culture. I was not impressed with the royal shrine. However, the exhibition, one floor above, was altogether a different matter. It was not only fabulous but also educative. The view from the top was also great.
  • Ancient palace of Leh... Provides a view of the city from an altitude.... Could do better as a tourist spot... Picture gallery could be improved... Top floor could be used as a photo shoot point...
  • Good efforts to maintain the Fort but lack of historical and traditional articles ,One can not feel that one is visiting in King"s Fort. Constructed up to seven floors and with mud. One can see whole of Leh from here. Simple beauty now Royal family has shifted to another place and this fort is converted as monument. Now one of attraction of tourists.
