Situated at the foot of the Zongshan Mountain in the northwest of Gyangze County, Palkor Monastery is composed of four parts: the Coqen Hall, the Buddhist Pagoda, Zhacang(or Tibetan Buddhist college), and the Bounding Wall.

The styles of the architecture and oblations of Palkor Monastery draw the quintessence of the Sagya Sect (Stripe Sect), the Gegyu Sect (White Sect), as well as Gelug Sect (Yellow Sect).

Gyangze County, known as the "peak of triumph" in Tibetan language, is located at the upper reaches of the Nyangchu River, a tributary of the Yarlung Zangbo River in southern Tibet Autonomous Region.
