Listed under Museums in Mongolia.

Pin It

Now preserved as a museum, this Buddhist monastery is one of the few to survive the Soviet purges and remains in good shape despite being opened in 1586, probably due to it’s continuous inhabitation by monks. The museum section houses regional treasures including clothes, musical instruments, seals, weapons, games, masks, scriptures and other traditional as well as religious artefacts.
