Alchi Gompa

Nr. Pathar Sahib, Leh 194101, India Phone: +91-194-2472449 Average Price: $ 0 per person


Alchi Gompa is the only remaining specimen of Indian Buddhist Iconography, which flourished in this region before Tibetan influences started gaining strength. Also called as Alchi Choskor, this complex dates back to the year 1000 AD and was built by translator, Rinchen Zangpo. Today, it is managed by Likir monks who act as docent-cum-gatekeepers for this currently inactive religious centre. Since Alchi lies in a lowland area, this is the only monastery in Ladakh which is not located on a hilltop
