With the influence of ancient dynasties and sects of Tibetan Buddhism over the centuries, Ladakh is peppered with dozens of fascinating religious sites. The Leh-Manali road passes one of the most extraordinary curios of Ladakh’s monastic circuit thousands of carved and whitewashed chortens commemorating distinguished monks and lamas. Just round the corner, a 300m bluff, rests the twelve-storey complex of Thikse monastery. Here, you will find scores thangkas, ironworks, murals, as well as a troupe of friendly monks and an 18-meter statue of the Buddha.

In local language of #ladakh, #monastery also known as #gompa.
...
In #buddhism it is a #sacred place. A monastery has many #temples in itself and every temple has a #special #priest.

First picture of this profile has to be from one of the best road-trips of my life till date. Mumbai-Leh Ladakh-Mumbai. 15 days of unforgettable journey from sea level to the highest motorable road in the world passing through some of the most dangerous roads to drive on.
This pic of the mesmerizingly beautiful orange day lilies was clicked on the stairways of Thiksey monastery with a breathtaking backdrop. The monastery is a must vist, located on the way to Pangong Tso from Leh. More pics of the monastery to follow soon...

It resembles to the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet.

Thikse Gompa, located atop a slope above a village of the same name, is the largest Buddhist monastery in central Ladakh, India.

A temple is also dedicated to goddess Tara with her 21 images placed in glass-covered wooden shelves. Also, small shrines devoted to several guardian divinities including Cham-spring - the protector deity of Thikse - can also be seen between the main courtyard and the staircase. The Chi-khang has an image of the Buddha with two of his disciples and the deity Yamantaka. The courtyard mural depicts Tsong Khapa, the Buddha, #Padmasambhava, Palden Lhamo and Mahakala.

Maitreya Buddha

The statue of Maitreya Buddha at Thikse is two storeys tall.One of the main points of interest is the Maitreya (future Buddha) Temple erected to commemorate visit of the 14th Dalai Lama to this monastery in 1970. It contains a 15 metres (49 ft) high statue of Maitreya Buddha, the largest such statue in Ladakh, covering two stories of the building.He is unusually portrayed as seated in the lotus position rather than his usual representations as standing or in a sitting posture on a high throne. It is the largest Buddha statue in the monastery, and took four years to build. It was made by the local artists under the master Shilp Guru Nawang Tsering of Central Institute of Buddhist Studies (Leh) - in clay, gold paint and copper.

Reflection!! This charming monk just smiled and was on toes during the preparation of early morning chanting at the monastery. His feathered smile always caught my attention. Once chanting was over I went up to him and we had a conversation for a  couple of minutes. It was then that came to my notice, that he had a fractured arm and wasn't comfortable for people to know about it. When asked why, in broken but honest words he replied,"I don't like sharring my pain!" #respect #ley #thiksemonastery #monk #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhite #inspiration #photography #kalayah #alokulfat #holdthemoment #insideout #makethiscount

Thikse Monastery

Thiksay Gompa or Thiksay Monastery (also transliterated from Ladakhi as Tikse, Tiksey or Thiksey) is a gompa (monastery) affiliated with the Gelug sect of Tibetan Buddhism. It is located on top of a hill in Thiksey village, approximately 19 kilometres (12 mi) east of Leh in Ladakh, India.[1] It is noted for its resemblance to the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet and is the largest gompa in central Ladakh, notably containing a separate set of buildings for female renunciates that has been the source of significant recent building and reorganisation

#thiksemonastery is located at an altitude of 3,600 metres (11,800 ft) in the Indus Valley. It is a twelve-story complex and houses many items of Buddhist art such as stupas, statues, thangkas, wall paintings and swords.

During our Learn, Serve & Immerse trip to Ladakh, we will visit Thiksey Monastery, a “gompa” belonging to the Gelugpa school (the "yellow hat" sect) of Tibetan Buddhism.  Built some 600 years ago, Thiksey Gompa is considered the most beautiful of all the monasteries in Ladakh and consists of 12 levels ascending a hillside. The gompa contains 10 temples and below the monastery itself are chapels and "houses" stretching down the hillside.

#Ladakh is a #mountainous region in the disputed northwest #Jammu and #Kashmir area in north India and in the area known as the #TransHimalaya, (the lands beyond the #Himalaya: Tibet, #Xinjiang and northern Pakistan). It's slightly smaller than #Scotland, the settled population live between 2700m and 4500m, and nomadic encampments even higher, and it's the largest and the least populated region of Jammu and Kashmir. 
Ladakh has a large selection of mid-range accommodation, with some offering decent value. Visitors coming from #Manali might find the selection somewhat limited, with attached bathrooms offering hot water somewhat hard to find. There are very few, if any, touts that are so common elsewhere in India, so looking around for #accommodation here is much easier and less stressful.

The #ThikseMonastery is a popular attraction. This #monastery is the largest such structure in central Ladakh and is primarily known for its magnanimous statue of #Maitreya  in its Maitreya Temple. This statue is 15 m (49 ft) high and the largest such statue in Ladakh. The #Buddha is unusually portrayed as seated in the lotus position rather than his usual representations as standing or in a sitting posture on a high throne.
