During our Leh visit, we were lucky enough to witness the Thiksey monastery prayers performed by the Yellow Hat monks. It was a vibrant feeling hearing the chants and the various instruments being played during the the prayers. Even though there were several tourists gazing upon the monks and clicking pictures, they were unfazed from their prayers and just smiled back.
Listening to the reverberating sounds inside the temple, was a heavenly feeling and you really feel one with a higher power.
Tip: We visited Thiksey monastery just before 3 pm. This is the time the monks complete their prayer and break for lunch. Hence the temples get closed too. Make sure to reach here before 2.30 pm so that you can see the monastery properly and also witness the prayers. There are other prayer timings too, for which you can check with your local guide.
