History of Leh

In history of Leh, on trade routes along the Indus Valley between Tibet, Kashmir and also between India and China, Leh was a significant stopover for centuries. The major goods carried were salt, grain, pashm or cashmere wool, charas or cannabis resin from the Tarim Basin, indigo, silk yarn and Banaras brocade.

Tibetan prince, Skyid lde nyima gon (or Nyima gon) in history of Leh, who was grandson of the anti-Buddhist Tibetan king, Langdarma (r. c. 838 to 841) occupied Western Tibet. He founded several towns and it appears that he ordered the construction of the main sculptures at Shey. "In an inscription he says he had them made for the religious profit of the Tsanpo (the dynastical name of his father and ancestors), and of all the people of Ngaris (Western Tibet). This shows that by now in this generation Langdarma's opposition to Buddhism had moved out." Shey, just 15 km east of modern Leh, was the ancient seat of the Ladakhi kings in history of Leh.

Leh culture

The demeanour of the people is affected by their religion, especially among the women in leh culture. Among the Buddhists, as also the Muslims of the Leh area, women not only work in the house and field, but also do business and interrelate freely with men other than their own relations. In Kargil and its adjacent regions on the other hand, it is only in the last few years that women are up-and-coming from semi-seclusion and taking jobs other than traditional ones like farming and house-keeping. The natural enthusiasm of the Ladakhis in leh culture is given free restraint by the ancient traditions of the region. Monastic and other religious festivals in leh culture, many of which fall in winter, provide the excuse for welcoming gatherings. Summer pastimes all over the region are archery and polo. Among the Buddhists, these often build up into open-air parties accompanied by dance and song, at which chang, the local brew made from fermented barley, flows freely. Leh Culture read more

Take a torch (flashlight) at night, as there is next to no street lighting, and there are some very deep drainage ditches. Be careful of stray street dogs as they get aggressive and sometimes defensive after dark, especially in the inner alleys and around eateries.
