Day 2. Today, after breakfast we are driving to “Baldanbereevin” monastery.
BALDAN BEREEVEN monastery was first built in 1777. The monastery of Baldan Bereeven is surrounded by four mountains each said to resemble an animal: a lion on the east; a dragon on the south; a tiger on the west; and a Garuda on the north. Each cardinal point is also guarded by a Protector Deity. The originally temple was demolished during the persecutions of the late 1930s and the Red Jamsram painting damaged or destroyed. The Jamsran rock painting in the temple now is thought by some to be the original but no one is quite sure. At its peak it was one of the three largest monasteries in Mongolia and home to 1500 lamas. It was destroyed by thugs in the 1930s and by fire in the 1970s. Now only ruins remain. On the rock above a complex of small temples, now in ruins, is a Soyombo, the head symbol of the Soyombo Alphabet invented by Zanabazar. This Soyombo was reportedly painted by Lama Dampilranjamba in the late eighteenth century. According to legend Dampilranjamba said, "This Soyombo will remain here long after the rest of the monastery is destroyed and fallen into ruins.”
Day 3. Today’s destination is “Rashaant had” rock carving through “Uglugchiin herem” ancient Qidan town
Uglugchiin herem is located 45 km in south west of Batshireet soum center of Khentii aimag and 8-10 km from the delta of Bayan River and Uglugchiin River. It lies in a valley of Daichin Mountain and was built with skillfully piled stones without any clays and mud. It is about three kilometers long and it has two entrances, in south and north sides. There is a small soil dam remainder inside and piling of this wall can be clearly seen from its south east and south sides. Other parts became too difficult to distinguish from earth. The height of the wall was 2.5-4.5 meters when a Soviet archeologist S.Kondratiev measured in 1926, but its highest point is 3.1 meters and 2, 5 meters wide now. A tall rock inside the wall is called as “Horse handle of Chinggis Khaan” by local people. There was no trace of building and at the Uglugch wall and S.Kondratiev thought it was the stronghold of archers of 12-14 century because of earth leveled up to the wall height inside. Kh.Perlee said that it belongs to Khyatan time because of its clay and ceramic remaining. But there was not any writing about Uglugch wall and it located far beyond than Khyatan’s land at that time.
