Lamayuru Gompa

Ladahk, India

The extreme aridity of Ladahk gives this temple complex the appearance of being built on the moon. Lamayuru Gompa is about halfway between the verdent valley of Kashmir and the upland desert plateau of Tibet. Decades before Tibet was open to western travellers, this area was accessible for those interested in Tibetian life.
