Pelkor Chode Monastery

Founded in 1418, the red-walled Pelkor Chode Monastery was once a compound of 15 monasteries that brought together three different orders of Tibetan Buddhism - a rare instance of multidenominational tolerance. Nine of the monasteries were Gelupa, three were Sakyapa and three belonged to the obscure Buton suborder whose head monastery was Shalu near Shigatse.
