Sera Monastery monksSera Monastery Lies at the foot of a mountain in the northem outskirts of Lhasa. It was founded in 1419 by Jamchen Choje, one of the eight disciples of Tsongkhapa, the founder of Gelugpa Sect, covering an area of 114,964 square metres. The structure is imposing, picturesque in disorder, and splendid in green and gold. It is a typical Tibetan architecture. Sera Monastery, together with Ganden Monastery and Drepung Monastery in Lhasa, is reputed as the Three Great Monasteries of Tibet. You can see the famous daily debating there (3pm-5pm not sundays). On Shoton Festival, if you couldn't have a chance to see Thangka displayed, you can see it the same day afternoon in Sera Monastery
