Photographer's Note

Hello everybody

I visited Diskit Monastery at Nubra Valley in Ladakh on 4th July, 2012. This is 32 metre statue of Maitreya Buddha near Diskit Monastery facing down the Shyok River towards Pakistan. The Diskit monastery is situated on the hill, just above the flood plains of the Shyok River, on its right bank in the Diskit village (3,144 metres (10,315 ft)) in Nubra Valley. The statue's construction was started in April 2006 and it was consecrated by H.H. the Dalai Lama on 25 July 2010. It is really wonderful statue.

best wishes to all.
