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. The famous Drotshang bell is kept in this monastery and which is seem to be the biggest and oldest bell in Tibet. The bell was hanging on the second floor and seen throught opened window.
