By Leh standards this gompa is nothing special and all of the temples were locked when we visited. But we were the only tourists there and happily spent an hour wandering around. It's definitely not on the standard tourist route and that appealed to us. The views down the valley in both directions are great

Peace comes easily to me t the Phyang Monastery. The roof and the new temple is where most people go, but the older temples offer something different to a lot of other monasteries in Ladakh. Go. Sit there. Soak in the warms wooden charms of the places. Smell the past, the present and the future. Find yourself, if necessary.

This is a small monastery but with a big campus. I was here to shoot a commercial. It is nice to spend some time with the Lamas there and know about their journey and everyday life.

Phyang Gonpa is far enough from Leh to prevent being overrun with tourists, but near enough to easily fit into a day trip or loop. The monks are receptive to guests and the view is unparalleled in the area around Leh, Ladakh.

Most part of this monastery is newly built and hence has that feeling of "newness". Being not very popular as Shey, Thiksey or Hemis it is still a quiet place with very less or no crowd.

I went to this pleasantly peaceful monastery on 24th April 2016, it's located about 20km from Leh, it's a must visit place when we are in Leh, I took some lovely photos to cherish, we will be very peaceful and feeling relaxed when we sit in silence after doing all the formalities. Happy travelling ... Enjoy !!!

Phyang Monastery overlooks the Zanskar Range of the Himalayas. While the new building is imposing and overlooks the valley, the red temple building has two sides to it. The newer, larger prayer room is a place i can sit in for hours and just concentrate on my breath. There is little noise - only the occasional monk chanting and the... More

The monks at the monastery gave me a tour and welcomed me to share lunch with them. The new temple is painted with the life story of the Buddha and is beautifully done.

This is not your typical heritage monastery as it's quite a modern place. Its lots of glass and chrome building built next to the old Gompa quaintly ensconced in the lap of mountains on way to Nanak Hill.As you take the turn and drive towards the Village the grand structure of the Monastery looms out, The beauty of the structure...
