Lhodrakarchu Monastery is a Buddhist Monastery in Bumthang District in central Bhutan. The Monastery overlooks Jakar Dzong and the town of Jakar.

The Monastery is a recent construction, and began being built in the 1990s in the traditional Dzong architectural style following funding from international and Bhutanese donors. As of 2006 the Monastery was still not entirely completed. Nevertheless the Monastery is home to about 250 Monks, many of them children and young adults. The Monastery follows the lineage of the Namkhe Nyingpo Rinpoche, which is said to be descened from a Disciple of Guru Rinpoche in the 8th century.
