Home » Destinations » Kargil » Attractions » Zongkhul Monastery

Zongkhul Monastery lies on the trekking route of Padum-Kishtwar and is constructed within a spectacular cave. Situated on the Ating Gorge, this monastery is associated with a popular Indian Yoga guru known as Naropa. The monastery is built around two caves where Naropa meditated during his existence. The walls of the caves are covered with very old paintings which reflect the artistic style of that time.
