Fun Fact! Ladakh has the largest telescope in Asia.
It is true that "gods reside in the mountains," as you may have heard. At an incredible height of almost 4500 metres, the Indian Astronomical Observatory in Ladakh houses Asia's biggest telescope. As a result, Ladakh has become a mecca for astronomers and astrophotographers! It is India's first robotic telescope and the world's biggest. It's in Hanle, a little town in the middle of nowhere.
