Sera Debating Gardens

Founded in 1419, this temple’s debating gardens are the training ground and stage for some of Tibet’s most intellectually rigorous monks. At its height, the Sera monastery was residence to more than 5,000 of them and five monastic colleges. Although obviously much less active now with only a few hundred monks 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.
