ROYAL LEH PALACE
Leh Palace is a former royal palace overlooking the town of Leh, Ladakh, in
The Indian Himalayas.
The palace was constructed by Sengee Namgyal. The palace was abandoned when
Dogra forces took control of Ladakh in the mid-19th century and forced the royal
family to move to Stok Palace.
It is nine storeys high; the upper floors accommodated the royal family, while the
lower floors held stables and storerooms. Much of the palace is in a deteriorated
condition, and little survives of its interior decorations. The Palace Museum holds
a rich collection of jewelry, ornaments, ceremonial dresses, and crowns.
