The  DU-KHANG is  enshrined here and houses one of the largest  revered statues of Lord Buddha  in Gilded Gold in all of Ladakh.

Many folklores and fables of faith wrap this Gorgeous Statue of the Sakyamuni Buddha .

Do have a look at previous blogs titled“HIMLAYAN PALACE” &  “HOLY LAKE” as well.

The following Apt Mantra was shared by my dear friend Nia  from Turkey on reviewing the pictures and post.

“Oṃ muni muni mahāmuni śākyamuni svāhā, Om muni muni mahamuni shakyamuni svaha”
