Standing at the hill's base is an immense 32-meter (106 feet) tall statue of Maitreya Buddha, gazing toward Pakistan along the Shyok River, adjacent to the official residence of the Nubra chief lama. The Rizu monastery, adorned with 8 kg of gold donated by Ganden Thipa (reincarnation of Tsongkhapa), head of the Gelugpa, underwent embellishment. Initiated in April 2006, the statue's construction aimed at three key objectives, including safeguarding Diskit village and averting conflicts with Pakistan. The Dalai Lama consecrated this monumental masterpiece on July 25, 2010, marking a significant presence in the landscape and a testament to the harmonious confluence of spiritual devotion and strategic considerations in the region's history.
