Serdokchen is a Sakya monastery near Shigatse in Tsang that was founded by Panchen Donyo Pel, also known as Donyo Drubpa or Amoghasiddhi, in 1475. Donyo Pel passed the monastery down to his student Panchen Śākya Chokden who renamed it Serdokchen and spent much of his life there. It was formerly called Zilung.
