Zongkhul
A cave monastery of Zanskar,

Zongkul

stands perched on the rock face of the Ating George. There is an interesting legend associated with the

Zongkul

Monastery of Ladakh. It is said to be connected with Naropa, the famous Indian Yogi from Vikramshila. Infact, it is believed that he even used the two caves of the monastery for the purpose of his solitary meditation. Even today, one can see Naropa's footprint embedded in the rock and his sacred spring, located inside the meditation cave.

After Naropa meditated here, the 

Zongkul

monastery became the sacred place of meditation for all the mahasiddhas of Zanskar. Enlightened people like Dubchen Kunga Gyatso, Dubchen Nawang Tsering, Dzadpa Dorje, Karmapa, Kunga Choslag, etc have used

Zongkul

for meditation purposes. The 

Zongkul

Gompa of Leh Ladakh consists of a number of blessed shrines.

Zongkul

also boasts of a rich compilation of precious artifacts, like ivory image of Samvara, a crystal stupa, texts containing the spiritual songs and biographies composed by the successive mahasiddha, etc. Not to be missed are the splendid murals, made by Zhadpa Dorje almost 300 years ago.
