The monastery has got its name Takthok which in English means ‘rock – roof’. Actually, the walls along with the roof of this monastery are built of rocks only and that is why it got its name Takthok. This infamous monastery belongs to Tibetan Buddhism’s Nyingma tradition. A total of 55 lamas are currently residing inside this monastery. This monastery is one & the only monastery in Leh belonging to Nyingma tradition. This makes it highly popular and unique among the other monasteries.
It is supposed that this monastery came into its existence in the mid of 16th century. The monastery was crafted under the ruling of ‘Tshewang Namgyal’. It is built around a cave on a mountainside. According to the legend, the great Padmasambhava did his meditation in this cave in the early 8th century. This cave is termed as Duphug (Tu-Phuk) Lhakhang. This cave is a famous pilgrimage for all the Tibetan Buddhists around the world.
The famous Takthok festival takes place here on every 9th as well as 10th of every sixth month according to the Tibetan calendar. The major attraction of this festival is the sacred dance which takes place here every year. This monastery belongs to the ancient ‘Nying-ma-pa sect’ of Buddhism.
