Built in the 17th century by King during that period Sengge Namgyal, the palace was completely abandoned by the mid of the 19th century, when Ladakh was taken over by the Dogra army. During the present times the nine storied palace of Leh is totally ruined and is now being restored under the initiative of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
Sun Temple: This extremely well-known temple of Ladakh is dedicated to Bhaskar, the Sun God. Dating back to the medieval times, the temple was constructed under the aegis of King Lalitaditya, as a mark of respect for the Sun God. The temple features a colonnaded courtyard and in addition to the main shrine, people visiting the temple can also view the 84 columns used during the construction of the temple. Rigid and square slabs of limestone were also used for the construction of the temple, which is a great example of the medieval style architecture.
Thiksey Monastery: This famous monastery, located just outside Leh, is a segment of the Gelugpa order in Buddhism. The monastery features Thangkas, stupas, swords, wall paintings and statues along with a pillar, which has the teachings and principles of Buddha carved on it.

Vajra Bhairav Shrine: This Buddhist shrine is dedicated primarily to a tantric guardian deity, belonging to the Gelug-pa order, and believed to possess supernatural powers. The deity is revealed only once every year to the public, while it spends the remaining time in a chamber situated within the shrine.
