Yuru Kab-gyat

Rate this festival

Lamayuru Yuru Kab-gyat festivaltakes place at the Lamayuru monastery, considered to be the oldest monastery in Ladakh. This two-day festival of sacred dances and other rituals is performed by the resident monks wearing masks representing guardian divinities from the Dri-gung-pa monastic order pantheon and concludes as most monastic dances with the destruction of the sacrificial offerings. The festival is an unforgettable event no less for its own unique character than for the spectacular, picturesque moon-land surroundings of the remote village high above which the Lamayuru Gompa is mounted precariously atop a steep hill.
