Monasteries

The proud nation mongolians prevailed the half world in history. Later Mongolia were until 1911 over 220 years under Manchu regent. The reason to become weaker, was the introduction of the Buddhism. For the successful introduction of the buddhism they built innumerable monasteries and temple's at attractively beautiful areas. By the communist purge of 1930 years approximately over 900 monasteries and temple's were destroyed. Some of really true works of art are still received, kept and also restored. Some of them are belonging to the world cultural heritage. Nowadays you see many ruine's of ancient monasteries and temples.

Today in Mongolian were built also some more magnificent temples, monasteries and Buddha statues by donations from the religious people.
