Drothsang Dorje Chang monastery was built in the year of 1583 by the third Dalai Lama. There is a statue of the Third Dalai Lama. Around 1948, the monatery used to have 400 monks at the monatery and after the cultural revolution number of monks obviously declined. Currently there are only ten monks at the monastery. These are paintings on ceilings of Drotshang Dorjee Chang and are the paintings of Khorlo, or wheel of Dharma.
