Chemrey or Chemdrey, gompa of the Drukpa (Red Hat) sect in eastern Ladakh, founded in 1664 by Lama Tagsang Raschen who also founded Hemis Monastery as a memorial to the local king Sengge Namgyal, who had a big importance for the spread of Tibetan Buddhism in Ladakh. The monastery comprises a number of shrines, two assembly halls (Du-Khang) and a Lama temple (Lha-Khang). The main attraction of the monastery is the one storey high statue of Padmasambhava. Another big attraction is the 29 volume scripture written in silven and golden letters.
The monastery holds every year the Chemrey Angchok festival of sacred dances. It takes place on the 28th and 29th day of the 9th month of the Tibetan calendar. 
Chemrey is currently suffering from declining interest in monastic life by local young Ladakhis.
Chemrey is located at 33°58′N 77°48′E / 33.97°N 77.80°E. It has an average elevation of 3,817 metres (12,526 feet).
