Baldan Bereeven Monastery

The Baldan Bereeven Monastery and its surrounding landscape are located in the long, deep valley of the Baruun Jargalant River, within several picturesque sacred mountains such as Munkh Ulziit, Arvan Gurvan Sansar, Bayan Baraat, and Bayan Khangai, all of which are part of the Khentii mountain range. In this area is the beautiful Khangal lake in front of the sacred Bayan Baraat mountain and Jargalant Ovoo (Cairn), which has been worshipped by nomadic people since ancient times. The Baldan Bereeven Monastery itself is located in the Jargalant River Valley and backed by the steep cliff of the sacred Munkh Ulziit mountain. The Jargalant River runs through this valley, which has long been renowned for its rich vegetation and pastureland for animals. This kind of natural environment has attracted nomadic people from prehistoric to present times, and is the reason for the association of this valley with cultural, religious and worship sites. The Monastery has served as the main religious center in Eastern Mongolia, and was registered with about 5000-7000 lamas at its peak. The main Tsogchin Temple was built in 1813.
