Shalu Monastery (Tib, ཞྭ་ལུ་, Wyl. zhwa lu) is located near Shigatsé in Tsang. It began as a series of small temples established by Chetsün Sherab Jungne in 1027 and grew to become one of the most important centres of learning in Tibet, largely through the influence of the great scholar Butön Rinchen Drup (1290-1364), who resided there for most of his life.
