Visit Ongi Khiid, Mongolia
Ongi Khiid, Mongolia
On the banks of the Ongi River lie the ruins of two Buddhist Monasteries, Barlim and Khutagd Khiid. In earlier days more than 500 Monks were resident here.
The Stalinist purges saw the end of these monasteries as functioning places of religion - now only the ruins remain as an interesting place of exploration.
