While most important monasteries in Ladakh are part of the Gelugpa (nullYellow Hat order), Lamayuru belongs to the Drikung Kagyu sub-sect of the Kagyu (nullRed Hat) order of Tibetan Buddhism.

Lamayuru significance stems from the fact that it is the oldest surviving monastery of Ladakh.

After a twelve year stint with his guru, Naropa established this monastery in the 11th century. He scripted the famous treatise, The Six Yogas of Naropa.
