Diskit Monastery in Ladakh

Diskit monastery is situated in the Nubra Valley of Ladakh and is home to a massive statue of Buddha on top of it. This famous monastery is also known as Diskit Gompa; the Buddhist center is one of the oldest and largest monasteries in Leh Ladakh.

The Diskit monastery was founded by Changzem Tserab Zangpo in the 14th century and at present stands atop a hill above the plains of the Shayok river. The prime attraction of the Diskit monastery is 100 foot high Maitreya Buddha statue, which was inaugurated by Dalai Lama. From the top of the Gompa, where the divine statue is settled, one can have a panoramic view of the Nubra valley. 

Besides the Buddha statue, other attractions to ponder over in the Diskit monastery are the ancient murals and frescoes.
