Zhangzhung Dorjeden is a Shangpa Kagyu monastery that was founded by Khyungpo Neljor in 1121. It is located in the Shang valley of Tsang. Khyungpo Neljor's remains were interred here. It was later converted to the Geluk tradition, and the Shangpa teachings were restored by Kalu Rinpoche in the 1940s.
