Baldan Bereeven khiid

Baldan Bereeven Monastery belongs to the Buddhist sect monastery Gelugpa. It’s located in the valley of the Baruun Jargalant River, in the sum of Omnodelger, province of Khentii.
The monastery is located on the hillside of a steep cliff of Mount Munkh Ulziit, on which we can see several stone sculptures representing Buddhist gods, mantras, and the symbol of soyombo.
Baldan Bereeven Monastery was created in 1654 at Tsevendorj’s suggestion. The lama Tseveendorj studied with Zanabazar, the first Bogd Gegeen of Mongolia, in Tibet. He wanted to create a monastery with a similar architecture to that of Lumbini, Buddha’s birth place, in order to house the Mongolian pilgrims who couldn’t travel so far. Originally, Baldan Bereeven had about 1500 lamas in its community.
The construction of the main temple, called Dash Tsepel Ling, began in the mid-1700’s and finished in 1776. The temple Tsogchin Dugan, “large room”, was achieved in 1813 ; it was a reproduction of the famous Tibetan Utai Gumbun. The Tsogchin Dugan was one of the largest buildings of whole Mongolia. It was 30 metres (98,43 feet) long, 30 metres (98,43 feet) wide, and nearly 12 metres (39,37 feet) high.
In 1850, once the renovation of the main temple completed, Baldan Bereeven, as a cloistered school, reached its peak. It housed four different schools and more than twenty temples, and almost 8000 lamas lived and studied here. At the beginning of the 20th century, an epidemic decimated more than half the community.
Dadal Soum – Chinggis Khan’s Birthplace
Dadal Soum is a region in Khentii province, which is considered to be the birthplace of Genghis Khan. Temuujin was born here in 1162 near Deluun Boldog Mountain. A large statue of the khan was erected for his 800th anniversary in 1962. The site has a sacred reputation among Mongols, and it is located in a quiet rural area. Dadal Soum also used to house one of the three great lamaist temples consecrated to Genhis Khan, however this was sadly destroyed in the 1930s.

The surrounding area contains trails and lakes as well as monuments teaching about the glorious past of the Mongol empire.

Khuduu Aral ”Deluun boldog”

Khuduu Aral is the place where the Secret History of the Mongols (the Mongolian account of Genghis Khan) was written at the beginning of the 13th century. Khuduu Aral is a vast steppe about 30 kilometres long and 20 kilometres wide and it is dotted with several lakes and small hills in the area. It is also believed that the palace of Genghis Khan stood in this area. This would make sense as the steppe is protected from all sides, surrounded by mountains and the valley of the Kherlen River. Here the three Great Khans: Ogedei, Munkh and Yesun Tumur were all crowned. In 1990, a four metre tall Genghis Khan monument was erected to celebrate the 750th anniversary of the Secret History of Mongols.

It is here that you will also find ruins of the old city of Aurag, near Khuduu Aral, built by Genghis Khan and also known as winter palace of the khan. Aurag was founded in 1189 and is one of the oldest population centres, and like Karakorum, it was first used as a supply base for the Mongol army. It is also believed that Genghis Khan used to drink water from the natural mineral springs near the ruins.

Dariganga.

When Khalkh Mongolia was defeated by Manchu in the late 1690s, the group called Dariganga was generated by the people coming from Tsakhar, Khalkh and Oirad for herding the horses. They are considered as another ethnic group because they have been mixed up for many years and have created a slight difference in the material and culture of their own culture, or clothing, ornaments, feast and wedding. About the language, it is very similar to the Khalkh.
From 1800 to 1970, many famous protagonists were born and they developed Dariganga style. They are made of silver saddles, bridles, knives and sapphires, which are unique and double-framed, engraving with moving dragon, flower leaf and butterfly
They were using the bridles, deel made of wood and decorated with bones and silver as “Dariganga design” which was famous in not only Mongolia, but Asia.
The trunk is a pearl cage that has three coral wraps on the forehead, with a pearl cage and a pair of pearls with turquoise. Their hair ponytails are rich in corals.
In Mongolia, there are 26 834 of Dariganga people, accounting for 0.9 percent of the total population and inhabiting in the Asgat, Bayandelger, Dariganga, Naran, Onon, Tuvshenshiree, Uulbayan and Khalzan soums of Sukhbaatar province.

Shiliin Bogd

At 1778m, Shiliin Bogd Uul. about 70km East of Dariganga, is the highest peak in Sukhbaatar aimag. The extinct volcano is sacred to many Mongolians: the spirit of any man (and man only!) who climbs it, especially at sunrise, will be revived. The region is stunning, isolated and close to the Chinese border – so be careful.
Shiliin Bogd offers one of the greatest sunrises in a country full of great sunrises.
On the road between Dariganga and Shiliin Bogd, 8km past Ganga Nuur, look out for the new statue of Toroi-Bandi, the ‘Robin Hood’ of Mongolia, who had a habit of stealing the horses of the local Manchurian rulers, then eluding them by hiding near Shiliin Bogd Uul. The statue, dedicated in 1999, pointedly faces China.

Khalkh gol

Khalh Gol: The biggest river on the steppe of Khalkhgol soum, Dornod province in Eastern Mongolia is Khalkh River. This beautiful lakes’ west bank is taller than the east bank, so from the east, it looks like a wall. Thus the river is called “Khalkh” river which means “shield” in Mongolian.
The river originates in the Great Hyangan Mountains, flows 233 kilometers, and empties into Lake Buir. The end of the river has two branches, one of which flows into the northwestern part of Lake Buir. However, the other tributary joins the Orchun River, which originates just north of Lake Buir and flows into Lake Khulun in Inner Mongolia, China. The Khailaast River flows into the Khalkh River. In 1939 an undeclared war was held between Japan – Manchu and The Soviet Union – Mongolia near the Khalkh River.
