History of Leh
Ladakh was inhabitants for many years but Buddhism settled here when they came here from India travelling to Mt. Kailash and soon become the dominant religion in Leh. In 9th century, the Buddhist kings of Ladakh had established a kingdom extending all the way from Kashmir to Tibet, protected by forts and built Buddhist gompas (monasteries)in many places. Simultaneously, Muslim armies began to invade Ladakh from the west, but Buddhism bounced back under Singge Namgyal (1570–1642), who established a new capital at Leh. In response to anti-Buddhist discrimination, the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) was formed in 1996, lobbying for the creation of a Union Territory of Ladakh. Since then, candidates from the Ladakh Union Territory Front have lead the field at elections, but with the state government profiting heavily from Leh Ladakh Tourism industry, autonomy is likely to remain a distant dream.
