The main attraction of the Lamayuru region, the sprawling Lamayuru Monastery, lies at a distance of about 127 km from Leh. Murals, frescoes and column paintings exemplifying the Kashmiri style of Buddhist iconography are what stand out in this monastery.
The monastery also has a small temple dedicated to Avalokiteshwara, the manifestation of the compassion of all Buddhas. Two annual Mask Dance Festivals are held in Lamayuru Monastery, marking one of the best times to visit the place.
