Oracles at Stok Guru Tsechu major attraction on Day 2 of Ladakh Winter Conclave

Leh (Ladakh), February 22 (Scoop News)-The second day of the second edition of the Ladakh Winter Conclave, organised by the Tourism Department, UT Ladakh, started with three parallel panel sessions after which the participants attended Stok Guru Tsechu and later had lunch at the Stok Palace with King Jigmed Wangchuk Namgyal.
The major highlight of the day was the appearance of oracles at Stok on the occasion of Stok Guru Tsechu. Due to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic, only a few guests were allowed for the event at Stok. Guests sought blessings from both the oracles who appear every year on Stok Guru Tsechu and make predictions for the future.
The guests had lunch at the 14th-century Stok Palace that was earlier the residence of descendants of the Namgyal dynasty. King Jigmed Wangchuk Namgyal hosted the lunch.
