Diksit Monastery is one key tourist attraction people visit during their Ladakh visit. Located in the Nubra Valley, the monastery is the oldest and largest in the region. As pretty as the monastery is itself, we could not get over the impressive 32 feet colorful statue of the Maitreya Buddha nestled in the mountain landscape. This photograph was taken from the Diksit monastery.

The beauty of the enormous brightly colored Maitreya Buddha against the mountains is indescribable. For one we can see that however huge a man-made object is, it still appears tiny in front of nature's creations. And as you look closer, we experience a serenity in the calm expressions of the Buddha coupled with the equally peaceful landscape.
No Ladakh trip album is complete without this picture-perfect postcard, we say!
