Sera Tekchen Chokhorling, located in Serta, was founded in 1736. In 1868, under the leadership of Sotrul Natsok Rangdrol Rinpoche (1869–1935), it was moved to the Sera Valley, where it still exists today. At that time, Sera was reorganized as a non-sectarian institution, having previously been a Nyingma institution in the Pelyul tradition. Sera Khandro Kunzang Dekyong Wangmo, who is named for the monastery, was invited by Sotrul Natsok Rangdrol to reside at Sera in 1924.
