Not worth visiting , poor maintenance and no old materials to see. The building itself is shabbily maintained

The Palace perched on a ridge is unique in its architecture, built in the old Tibetan style. There are a total of nine floors, the last floor closed to public. Most of the artefacts are not on display, as there is construction work going on. The roofs are low, and there are benches on every floor to take rest. A great place to visit to feel how the royalty lived in the palace some five hundred years ago. A must visit.

Leh palace situated near the Leh market and should be there in the itinerary. Though the palace lacks in antiques or museum but it provide a great view of the city from top floors. The information about the heritage sites in India is good for the students.

We were at the Leh palace today for a visit. The motorable road goes all the way up to the entrance. You need a ticket to enter. There are 4 more levels once you have entered. The view from the levels is amazing. I would not say that the inside of the palace rooms was very impressive - mostly modern artefacts. But it is worth looking at the architecture of the building and understanding the logic of how this was built.

By starting in the corner of the L-shaped pedestrianised market area, you can follow your nose (in some ways by the smell!) through the winding alleys of an older part of town up to the palace that you can easily see above you. It takes about 20-30 minutes and assumes you are altitude acclimatised. Although none of the original interior artefacts survive, there is an interesting exhibition of the best heritage sites across India, and the Buddhist shrine within is well worth taking off your shoes to go inside. Best of all are the views from the top of the palace across Ladakh, and the plain and mountains beyond. There appears to be an entry fee to visit but when we went all the offices were closed so we entered for free. Worth a short hike to visit one of the main attractions of Leh.

I had visited this place in 2013,it was in a very bad shape,I never recommended people to visit considering the way it was kept,I happened to visit the palace again during my latest visit to Leh,I must admit that the place has been neatly renovated and kept well.It exhibits the rich culture and heritage of Leh & Ladakh.It a must visit place now.

Not a very promising palace architecture,but very basic structure with lots of alleys & steep climbs to different floors.It is more of a museum depicting the different heritage sites managed by ASI.
If time permits,one can visit here,nothing great.

Leh Palace also known as Lachen Palkar Palace is a former royal palace overlooking the city of Leh in Ladakh, India. It was constructed circa 1600 by Sengge Namgyal. The palace was abandoned when Dogra forces took control of Ladakh in the mid-19th century and forced the royal family to move to Stok Palace. Built of Wood, sand and stone is devoid of the grandeur associated with Indian Palaces. Now in ruins and is maintained by ASI. Must visit in LEH.
