The Main Assembly Hall has a history of about five hundred years. In Tibetan, it is called 'Tshomchen'. It is a three-storied building. On the first floor are the Main Chapel, Eastern and Western Chapels, and the cloister. In the Main Chapel is the bronze statue of Sakyamuni with a height of nearly eight meters (26 feet). It is said that about 14,000 kilograms of copper were used to build the statue

This amazing stupa is about 32 meters high which has 108 gates, and 76 chapels and shrines. It is the symbol of the Pelkhor Choede. It also has another name 'Ten Thousand Buddha Pagoda'. About ten thousand figures of Buddha are celebrated in the chapels, shrines or as murals in the pagoda, hence its name. The pagoda comprises nearly one hundred chapels which overlap one another. People call this kind of structure 'tower upon tower'.

Pelkhor Choede enjoys a high status in Tibet Buddhism history because it houses three sects - Sakyapa, Kadampa and Gelugpa together. Those three sects get along well with each other though they once quarreled and fought. The Bodhi Dagoba, the Main Assembly Hall, murals and Zhacang (hall for the monks) in the monastery are the most renowned.
