The former capital of the Kingdom of Ladakh, Leh possesses a historic old town area marked by stupas, monasteries, and traditional mud-brick houses. Centered around the bazaar and surrounding Tibetan Buddhist shrines, and extending out into the barley fields of the suburbs, the old city possesses a rich history of trade, religion, and agriculture.
