Leh Palace overlooks the Ladakhi Himalayan town of Leh. Leh Palace is an example of the medieval Tibetan architecture. It features colossal inclined buttressed walls and protruding wooden balconies. The highlights of the place are flaking murals and splendour of the ruined royal apartments. Its roof terrace offers picturesque views of the town and the snow-capped Stok Kangri mountains. The Leh Palace is nine storeys high; the upper floors accommodated the royal family, while the lower floors accommodated the stables and store rooms. The palace was built by King Sengge Namgyal in the 17th century and was later abandoned when Kashmiri forces besieged it in the mid-19th century. The palace is currently being restored by Kashmiri craftsmen. The palace is open to the public and the roof provides panoramic views of Leh and its surrounding areas.
