TUVKHUN MONASTERY -MAJESTY IN SOLITUDE

TRAVEL TO TUVKHUN MONASTERY

Location: 450 km from Ulaanbaatar, 40 km from Khujirt town of Uvurhangai province.
Features: The first reincarnation in Mongolian Buddhism, Undur Gegeen Zanabazar, chose this area as a place for meditation because of its uniqueness in 1648 when he was just 10 years old. He ordered the construction of a small, stone house on a 30 meter tall rock hill. In that house he created his sculptures and paintings. This place was forgotten about during the war, but was restored in 1773 as Tuvkhun monastery.
