Sankar Gompa or Sankar Monastery is a beautiful monastery which is located 6 km from Leh, in the main city of Ladakh. Traditionally believed to be a subsidiary of Spituk Monastery, it has the same head or Lama, presiding over it and is also a residence of 20 monks who stay and learn the culture of Buddhism. The Sankar Gompa also serves as the residence of the Abbot of Spituk, the senior incarnate lama of Ladakh, making it an important religious site.
Since the Sankar Monastery is home to various attractions that illustrate the history and the heritage of the traditional building, it is ideal for those people who have a fascination for art and culture. One also gets the privilege to get a view of Namgyal Tsemo Hills from the monastery which makes it even more worthwhile to visit. However, since Sankar Gompa is home to a few monks, the timings of the monastery are restricted and whoever plans to visit the monastery is advised to do proper research with respect to its timings.
