It is lovely place. We went there around lunch time. Could not spend enough time to explore. Just read the history on the ASI plaque. A small place, good for photography, and friendly lamas.

Built in the 16th century, this has been well preserved and looked after . A lot of curio shops on the road leading up to the place and some eating places around make this a good day visit from Leh
