Ladakh, the northernmost part of India at an altitude of 2700 meters to 7600 meters above sea level, is a magical and mystical land dotted with Centuries-old Buddhist monasteries which are home to thousands of lamas practicing rich traditions of Tibetan Buddhism in a monastic order. Extraordinary picturesque landscapes at the foothills of the Great Himalayas are filled with  Monasteries, Buddhist monks and lamas adorned in red robes, colourful flags, whitewashed stupas or chortens and spreading fragrance of juniper in air, and churning of prayer wheels. These are the essential part of local culture and traditions of Ladakh.

These monasteries are the spiritual hub where hundreds of Buddhist monks or lamas live and practice centuries old ancient traditions established to live the life in a monastic order. Monasteries are also the home to the hidden treasure of centuries old art and culture in form of sculptures, paintings , thangkas, and much more.
