    Tsemo Gompa Temple : Daily Escape : Travel Channel

  • Robbin Stratton

    Jammu & Kashmir Province, India~crowning a perilous, jagged, mountain of rock in the Himalayas, the 15th-century Buddhist temple, Tsemo Gompa. Atop a maze of trails inhabited by more yak than humans, the sacred structure can be reached by foot from the mud-brick, high altitude city of Leh, once a key stopover along the Silk Road. Festooned with Buddhist prayer flags on its exterior, the temple enshrines a 3-story-tall golden Buddha, valuable frescoes & ancient manuscripts.
