We will visit Sera Monastery in the afternoon. Founded in 1419, at its height, Sera monastery was residence to more than 5,000 monks and five monastic colleges, although much less active now, with only several hundred monks currently in residence. One of the most interesting times to visit the monastery is in the afternoon when monks, after finishing their morning scripture classes, can be seen debating in the courtyard.
