Hemis Monastery : Understanding Ladakh Better

hemis-monestry

Built in 1620, the Hemis Monastery was established by the Buddhist patron and ruler, Singe Namgyal. With golden statues and gemstone studded stupas, this beautiful monastery is a must-see. Within the large courtyard, where the famed Hemis festival is held annually, there are two large temples with Kashmiri styled wooden verandahs. One is the Dukhang that displays the Rimpoche throne and has a large area for monks and religious ceremonies are held here.

 

The temple on the opposite side is the Tshogs-Khang which has an intricately handcrafted gilded sculpture of blue-haired Sakyamuni (Buddha) and numerous other tantric deities. The statue of Buddha is surrounded by numerous silver chortens and studded with gemstones, giving it a vivid look, well preserved over the centuries.
