Description

Amarbayasgalant monastery is located in valley river Iven at the foot of Burenkhaan mountain Baruunburen soum, Selenge province.It was established by decree of Manchurian king in memory of the Bogd lama Zanabazar. The construction work was started in 1727 and finished 1737. The construction of the monastery buildings are unique due to its archeological solutions. When the people build the buildings they didn’t use even one piece of nail.
During its flourishing it had 50 temples and more than 6000 monks. In modern time there are 28 temples remained since the communist purges.
There is a long and narrow valley named by the river flows through it. In summer time many nomadic families move into Iven valley along the bank of the Iven river. We will visit a young nomadic family here.
