Sera Monastery(China--Lhasa)
Sera Monastery is one of the "great three" Gelukpa university monasteries of Tibet. The other two are Ganden Monastery and Drepung Monastery. "Sera" means "Wild Rose Garden". The monastery is about 5 km north of the Jokang in Lhasa.

Major tourism highlights include watching the lively student monk debates and viewing notable religious artworks and relics.

It was founded in 1419, by Jamchen Chojey (Sakya Yeshe), a disciple of Tsong Khapa.The Sera Monastery is a large complex of buildings. These include large religious halls, three respected Buddhist religious colleges, and many monk dormitories.

Like the Drepung and Ganden monasteries, it had three colleges:

Sera Jey Dratsang, built in 1435, was the largest, and was reserved for wandering monks, especially Mongol monks.

Ngagpa Dratsang, built in 1559, was a school for the teaching of the Gelukpa tantras.

Sera housed more than 5,000 monks in 1959. Although badly damaged, it is still standing and has been largely repaired. It now houses a few hundred Buddhist monks.
