The Samstanling monastery is approximately 120 KMs from Leh and is very close to Panamik. Set amidst a picturesque ambience, the monastery is surrounded by the traditional hues of gold, white and red ochre. The intrinsic designs on the walls of the halls hold murals of Lord Buddha and his teachings of Dharmachakra and other manifests of Buddhism.
