Mausoleum Of Genghis Khan

The mausoleum of Genghis Khan (1162-1227), a pre-eminent 12th-century Mongolian monarch, is found in Ejan Horo Banner. The coffins containing the remains of the Khan and his wife are enshrined in the bedroom palace behind the memorial hall in the center of three interconnected halls in the design of Mongolian yurts. The entire complex is splendidly ornamented and forever enshrouded in the smoke of burning incense sticks offered by pilgrims from around the world. Four grand sacrificial ceremonies are held there every year.
