Ladakh History:

Tibetanisation of Ladakh began in the 7th and 8th centuries. Still existent chronicles refer to the area of Ladakh as part of Tibet. Ladakh was also influenced by Kashmir, at the time a Buddhist region. Kashmiri artistic influence can still be seen in the wood carvings of the early monasteries at Lamayuru and Alchi, and early Kashmiri Buddhist bronze statues are found in several Ladakh monasteries.Lang Darma, becoming king. Although Lang Darma was anti-Buddhist, Buddhism had already gained a large following in Tibet. Lang Darma was himself assassinated in 842 by a Buddhist monk, but Buddhism subsequently declined as a state sponsored religion concurrently with the decline of a strong central monarchy in Tibet. With the decline of Tibet's central government, Ladakh became an independent kingdom under local rulers of whom little is known.

Sikh rule was established over Jammu and Kashmir in the 18th century. A general in the Jammu army, Zorawar Singh, invaded Ladakh in what became known as the Dogra Invasion of 1834. Leh Palace was heavily damaged and the King of Ladakh retreated to Stok, where the family still lives (the most recent king was crowned in 1992).
