Tsenpo Gon, also known as Serkhok, is an important Geluk monastery in Amdo that was founded in 1649/1650 by Tsenpo Dondru Gyatso. It is the seat of the Mindrol, or Tsenpo Nominhan incarnation linegage. It was destroyed in 1724 by Chinese forces because it had supported the Mongolian rebellion of Lobsang Tendzin, but the restoration was completed within the next decade.
