Directly beneath the Tsemo Fort ruins, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa consists of two little 15th-century temple buildings. One enshrines an 8m-tall gold-faced Maitreya, the other is a more atmospheric Gonkhang of protector deities. Access on foot is by a steep, dusty path from Leh Palace or by concreted path from Chubi. Road access is a 3km loop from the Polo Ground, some 600m off the Nubra Road.
