Ganden Shedrub Pekar Drolwai Ling, also known as Serchen, Sertri, and Sertang, is an important Geluk monastery in Amdo that was founded in 1748 by Gyeltsen Sengge, the 53rd throne-holder of Ganden. This is one of two monasteries in the town of Taktsang Lhamo, which is located on the border of Gansu and Sichuan provinces. The other monastery is Taktsang Lhamo Kirti, which is adjacent to Serchen. Because of their close proximity, they are sometimes confused as one monastery.
