Polo Ground in Leh




Sengge Namgyal, the King of Ladakh during seventeenth century, laid the first royal polo ground in in the Murtse garden below Leh. The present polo ground is in the center of Leh adjoining the Deputy Commissionerís office. Exhibition and tournament matches have been held regularly. Usually the matches are conducted in evenings.

This ground offers a spectator view of the surrounding town, Leh Palace, the ruined fort and the bare foothills of the Ladakh Range.
