It was a difficult climb to the top but it was worth visiting the place. We were not allowed in the residential areas but we could visit the prayer halls. It gives a great insight into the local culture and heritage.

A place that can be easily left out if u r shortage of time & energy. Its an old palace with few articles on exhibit. Few areas of the palace was quite dusty & gloomy.

There was nothing Royal about this Palace, they have some of their Holy Books placed here, other than that they are just stairs and empty rooms here, The courtyard offers some city views but they are not that worthy of going up till the palace.

What little remains reminds you of the ladakh kings. Only history oriented people will value the ruins. Great view from the top of the majestic valley.
