The unique factor why you should consider to visit Alchi Gompa from a tourist perspective is the rare murals in Alchi Gompa. It would be hard not to notice the Mughal influence in the murals at the Alchi Gompa!!
Alchi Gompa is located approximately 60 kms west of Leh off the main Kargil Leh toute near Saspul. Alchi Gompa was established in 1000 AD, by Rinchen Zangpo. The Alchi Monastery is famous for the murals which adorns the walls of this ancient gompa although most of them require restoration and unfortunately few of the murals are beyond repair.
The Alchi monastery is now managed by monks from the Likir gompa. The two main temples in Alchi are the Alchi Du-khang and the Sum-tsek but there are also many smaller buildings to explore.
