Enjoy fabulous views from Diskit Gompa, the oldest and largest Buddhist monastery in the Nubra Valley. This complex features a huge prayer hall housing a statue of crowned Maitreya Buddha. Founded in the 14th century, the monastery has a cupola identical to Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Tibet. Painted in bright colors, another big statue of Maitreya Buddha stands on a hill just below the monastery, facing the Shyok River towards Pakistan.

  • Another mesmerizing place. The 182 fts tall Maitreya Buddha sits atop. The place offers stunning vistas from the top.

  • A beautiful, scenic, and hilly drive to Diskit Gompa was so worth it. The Mammoth size statue to Jampa (Maitreya) Buddha, as they call it, gives the impression that it has just landed from the blue...

  • Beautiful and serene monastery complex with amazing views of the Shayok Valley. The main attraction is the huge statue of the Maitreya Buddha. Inside, there are colorful wall paintings, beautiful (smaller) statues, and a peaceful atmosphere. There's an entry ticket. There's a small eatery, somewhat clean washrooms, and a gift shop.
  • Its a beautiful and blissful place in Diskit. A very big Budha statue here is really beautiful and amazing. One the way to Nubra valley we have to take a 2km deviation to reach here. Its really worth to reach here if you can take a half an hour from your schedule. The monastery view from here is also very nice. You can reach to top by your vehicle and parking space is available. Rest of the things will tell by the pics itself. Have a great time here.!!
