Alchi was built in the 11th century. Its sheltered position in the Indus
valley, off the main trails to Leh, is probably the major reason why it
survived wars and abandonment to the elements. It is the best surviving
example of the era and is notable because it was built down in a valley
instead of on a hill top or mountainside. Rinchen Zangpo under the patronage
of a local Tibetan King was responsible for founding Alchi. The Tibetans,
ability to construct and decorate the temples, consequently artists and
monks from Kashmir and north west India were employed, resulting in a
typically Indo Buddhist style. At the same time as Spituk and Thiksey, Likir
is recognised as the foremost Delugpa monastery in Ladakh region. It is
found near saspol on the Srinagar - Leh road. It houses a great deal of
gigantic clay statues of the Buddha in various forms, the primary attraction
