Sengge Shong Magotsang is an important Geluk monastery in the Rebkong region of Amdo. Founded in the seventeenth century at a site that was initially a Nyingma temple, Sengge Shong Magotsang contains murals and detailed architectural ornamentation that managed to survive the cultural revolution, during which it was used as a grainery. As of 1990, it was home to 170 monks, among them many artists who create work in the famous Rebkong style. The surrounding village is also home to many artists.
