Sengge Shong Yago, a Geluk monastery in the Rebkong region of Amdo, was founded in 1385 by the Seventh Rebkong Kyabgon. The monastery was home to 200 monks in the 1950's. By 1990, 100 had returned. The gathering hall contains impressive architectural details and murals and an adjacent temple contains statues of Shakyamuni Buddha.
