Sera Monastery

The original Sera Monastery is in Lhasa, Tibet. It was founded in 1414, by Jamchen Chojey (Sakya Yeshe), a disciple of Tsong Khapa. Like the Drepung and Ganden monasteries, it had three colleges:
Sera Mey Dratsang, built in 1419
Sera Jey Dratsang, built in 1435
Ngagpa Dratsang, built in 1559.

After the Chinese invasion of Tibet and the destruction of the majority of the monasteries in Tibet, Sera monastery was reformed in Bylakuppe[1], India, near Mysore. Because none of the monks of the Ngagpa Dratsang (Tantric College) survived the invasion[2], only the Sera Mey College and Sera Jey College were reformed in India[3]. Sera Monastery is still standing in Tibet, and once again houses some Tibetan Buddhist monks.
