Disket Monastery

Disket Monastery or Disket Gompa is a Buddhist monastery, known more as a monastic complex (chos-'khor) of temples in Disket village in the Leh District, of the Indian state under the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council of Jammu and Kashmir. The complex comprises four separate settlements in the Alchi village in the lower Ladakh region with monuments dated to different periods. Of these four hamlets, Disket monastery is said to be the oldest and most famous. It is administered by the Likir Monastery. Disket is also part of the three villages (all in lower Ladakh region) which constitute the ‘Disket group of monuments’; the other two villages adjoining Alchi are the Mangyu and Sumda Chun. The monuments in these three villages are stated to be of “unique style and workmanship’, but the Disket monastic complex is the best known.
