Phuktal Monastery: Understanding Ladakh Better

Phuktal-Monastery

Over 70 monks reside at this gompa which is cut under the rocks of the gigantic grotto while the water in the cave, over the monastery is said to have healing properties. The monastery contains the grave of its founder, Gangsem Sherap Sampo along with a large library of canonical texts.

 

Situated on a steep cliff, the Phuktal monastery is located at a unique spot in Zanskar. The foundation of this monastery was laid in the 12th century and consists of mud and twigs. The most alluring aspect of the monastery is the ceiling décor and frescos that were done centuries ago but are well-preserved in the old chapel.
