Kharhorin- Ogii lake through Khar Ruin and Kultegyn monument.
Khar Horin, which is the ancient capital city of Mongolia, was founded 1220 in the Orkhon valley, center of the empire for more than 140 years, destroyed in 1391 by Chinese troops. Erdene-Zuu monastery which is the first Buddhist center in Mongolia. Ogodei, son and successor of Chinggis, surrounded it by a rampart measuring approximately 1.7 km by 1 km; it was during this reign that Karakorum became a true urban, diplomatic, and commercial centre.

Erdenezuu Monastery
located North West of the imperial site of Kharkhorum, this monastery was built on the site of the ruins of the ancient Mongol capital which was the main center of Buddhism. At the present, 108 stupas are surrounding the monastery.
Erdenezuu and the vagaries of history: The construction of ERdenezuu began in the 16th century and continued until the middle of the 19th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, there were more than 600 temple halls and places of worship there, making it the most powerful of the Kalkh monasteries. But the Purges of the 1930s finished most of the temples and today only about 20 remain. What was left of the great monastic complex was turned into a museum in 1965 and Erdenezuu re-opened as a place of worship in 1990.

Kul tugen monument
About 20km northeast of Khar Balgas lies the remainder of yet another of these, the Turkic khaganate (pre-Mongol empire). All that’s left of the khaganate is the 3m-high inscribed monument of Kul-Tegin (AD 684–731), the khagan (ruler) of the ancient empire.  The monument was raised in 732 and is inscribed in Runic and Chinese script. Just over 1km away is another monument to Bilge Khagan (683–734), older brother of Kul-Tegin.
