We stayed in Samur village overnight so popped in here for a visit. Just as well we didn't travel far, the least impressive monastery we visited both externally and internally. New, just 150 years old in an unspectacular location with several temple rooms. The large silver stupa between two Buddhas was the most interesting.

The monastery has beautiful, artistic interiors and its exterior has hues of red, gold and white which can be seen from a distance.
The monastery has two assemblies which have breathtaking murals and paintings of Buddha, Dharma Chakra and four heavenly kings.
There were lot of apricot trees in the premises of the monastery which were in full bloom when we visited it.

Samstanling Gompa is located in Sumur Village in the Nubra Valley of the Ladakh.The Monastery was founded almost 150 years ago. The place is to be found in the middle of pleasant scenic beauty and is surrounded by traditional hues of gold, red and white. There are local buses and shared taxis that visit this village on regular basis from all important places in the Ladakh. You can also hire a private taxi to Sumur village. From the village you can either take a taxi or hike for 45 minutes to reach Samstanling Monastery.

The picturesque village Sumur in the Nubra Valley region is a charming little gem of Ladakh. Calm and peaceful is what this village is all about and giving it an added beauty is the Samstanling Monastery. Set amidst scenic mountains and greens, Samstanling is a popular monastery which showcases the traditional touch with shades of gold, red and white. This must visit attraction is approximately 120 km from Leh and a 45 minutes trek from Sumur village.

Samstanling Monastery is in Sumlur village and was founded by Lama Tsultim Nima, 140 years ago. The monastery houses 50 monks and this is the main monastery of the region.

On the way and around the monastery the landscape is enchanted with the yellow-red trees, vibrant and colourful prayer flags, berry bushes, golden-grey mountains reaching out to cuddle the pristine blue skyline. The monastery has two assembly, both of which have spectacular murals and paintings of Buddha, Dharma chakra, the four heavenly kings, guardians and lots of other aspects of Buddhism. The guest house in the monastery is the resident of the 7 year old incarnation of Lama Bakula Rinpoche, who is a great visionary.

We had visited this beautiful monastery located in Sumur village in Nubra Valley during our vacation in Ladakh. The Monastery is neat & clean, very well maintained and very peaceful place. At the entrance to the monastery there are red & green apple trees on both sides of the stairs. Inside the main prayer hall, we saw a very peaceful idol of Lord Buddha and many other small idols beautifully decorated. The paintings of Lord Buddha on the inner walls was colorful and very prominent. The monastery was neat & clean and very well maintained. Sumur sand dunes are located close by and we got amazing picture perfect views of Nubra Valley on our way to this monastery. After visiting this monastery, we had proceeded to visit Hunder sand dunes and we stayed for the night at Hunder.
