Ngor Ewam Chöden Monastery (ངོར་ཨེ་ཝཾ་ཆོས་ལྡན་, Wyl. ngor e waM chos ldan) — an important Sakya monastery, and seat of the Ngor subschool, established by Ngorchen Kunga Zangpo around 1430. Before being completely demolished during the Chinese invasion, it was a very active monastery, counting about 1,000 monks in the 1950s. It has only been partly reconstructed.

  • Thartse (ཐར་རྩེ་, thar rtse) and
  • Phende (ཕན་བདེ, phan bde)
