Of the many monasteries on the Monastery Circuit, Sanskar Monastery is one of the easier ones to access. Technically, it falls within Leh city. The head of the ubiquitous Gelukpa Sect resides here. The highlight of the place is the image of the Avalokiteshwara Padmahari or Chenresig with 1000 arms and 500 arms - quite a striking fellow. Around 20 monks live here. Check out the mandala and the frescoes in the main prayer hall.
