Manzushir Monastery

Manzushir Khiid is located in the southern part of the mountain Bogd Khan Uul, at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level. The monastery enjoys a beautifully stunning setting surrounded by a forest of Siberian larch with a backdrop of natural granite cliffs eroded into tors of huge rounded boulders. The monastery had over 20 temples and was once home to at least 300 monks, but was destroyed in the 1930s. The main temple has been restored and converted into a museum, but the other buildings in the area remain in ruins. The ruins of the original monastery, dating from 1733, are clearly visible. A God image, carved in the granite rock at the monastery, it is a unique historical and cultural exposition.
