Phyang is a hilly village located just outside Leh. It owes its popularity to the Phyang monastery which is named after a blue mountain. The Phyang Monastery was established in 1515. The current head Lama or teacher is His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche. Drikung Kagyu is one of the eight 'minor' lineages of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. The monastery has been recently refurbished and over 80 craftsmen and painters have put their skills into it. Following the traditional architecture it has been painted in the most vivid colors. Every inch of the niches and pillars outdoors, are covered in rich carvings that have been detailed beautifully. And the walls and ceilings indoors are covered in ritualistic paintings representing the future life of Buddha, the reincarnations of Buddha, the auspicious symbols of Buddhism, along with detailed tantric paintings etc. Within the Phyang Monastery there are sacred temples with frescoes dating back to the 14th century.
