Tabo is world known for the 1020 year old Buddhist monastry which is the oldest active Gompa in the Himalayas. The Nine temple complex,made of pure mud, has withstood the harsh climate of the cold desert for this long many years.
There are many priceless collection of Buddhist pantheon thangkas (scroll paintings), manuscripts, well-preserved statues, frescos and extensive murals that cover the entire sanctum walls, thus terming it the ‘Ajanta of the Himalayas’.
UNESCO is considering the complex to be listed as World Heritage Site.
