Photographer's Note

I was trying to get the complete view of the Lamayuru. If one knows how this terrain is difficult to find such complete view, somehow I could manage to get the Lamayuru complete view...monastry, village, approach road and vehicle too.

The oldest and spectacularly set holy site Lamayuru monastery is about 125 kms. West of Leh, founded in the 10th century . Lamayuru was once a lake. It was blessed by a lama after which, as legend goes, the water of the lake receded upto the mountains leaving place for the monastery to be built. It is also the free zone of Ladakh since not even a criminal can be apprehended in this place
the Lamayuru Gompa dates back to the 10th century and is known to be the oldest house of faith in Ladakh.
The monastery is also famous for being one of the most picturesquely located monasteries in Ladakh. It belongs to the Kagyupa Order of Buddhism and is believed to have been wrecked and reconstructed several times.
