Leh’s Main Attraction – The Main Market!

The Main Market is embedded with variety through its every nook and corner. From wool to cotton to any other material that comes to mind, you can find it here. The specialty of Main Market is the famous sonorous bowl or the Buddhist “singing bowl”. This bowl is engraved with imagery of Buddha and comes along with a wooden rod, which is used to hit and rub the bowl, and produce a loud sound, which resonates more and more as it is rubbed with the rod. The Main Market also has vegetable vendors ready to help with all your nutritional needs.

This market is ancient, dating back to the 15th century, during the era of King Singe Namgyal. It is close in proximity to another iconic market, The Old Tibetan marketplace. It is known to look beautiful when lit up in the nighttime.
