Home to the erstwhile Royal Family of Ladakh, the structure has been extensively renovated and extended to suit its new function as a museum of royal history. Artefacts crowns, photos, coins, official articles and jewelry are exhibited. Thankas (Buddhist paintings on silk), representing the teachings and ideologies of Buddha, are also displayed. The palace boasts exquisite gardens within the premises, and an excellent restaurant that faces Leh, offering a lovely dining view. The ginger tea and the bread pakodas at the restaurant come highly recommended.
