By Leh standards this gompa is nothing special and all of the temples were locked when we visited. But we were the only tourists there and happily spent an hour wandering around. It's definitely not on the standard tourist route and that appealed to us....More

This is a small monastery but with a big campus. I was here to shoot a commercial. It is nice to spend some time with the Lamas there and know about their journey and everyday life.

Phyang Gonpa is far enough from Leh to prevent being overrun with tourists, but near enough to easily fit into a day trip or loop. The monks are receptive to guests and the view is unparalleled in the area around Leh, Ladakh.

Most part of this monastery is newly built and hence has that feeling of "newness". Being not very popular as Shey, Thiksey or Hemis it is still a quiet place with very less or no crowd.

The monks at the monastery gave me a tour and welcomed me to share lunch with them. The new temple is painted with the life story of the Buddha and is beautifully done.

This is not your typical heritage monastery as it's quite a modern place. Its lots of glass and chrome building built next to the old Gompa quaintly ensconced in the lap of mountains on way to Nanak Hill.As you take the turn and drive towards...More
