AGLAG BUTEEL - MONASTERY
1 reviews

 When you arrive at the temple, the first thing you see is blue, white, and orange colored stupas which represents Mongolian 3 deities of the Root. Blue color represents the Ochirvaani deity whose role is to protect Mongolian land and people, white color represents the Janraisag deity who protects people from any sufferings and danger, and orange represents Manzushir deity who honors the mind.

There is paved road until the mountain skirt, then there’s a hiking trial to the temple. There are symbols of temple’s protective deities made by using unique formation of rocks and stones which is created like the animals from Buddhist legends.

There are 2 nature rocks sticking out of the ground inside and outside of the temple, and those first found when people were starting to build the foundation of the temple. They left those rocks as it is because when they tried to cut and remove them sudden wildfire started and they thought it was nature’s warning of not to affect those rocks.

Fairytale like animals in this temple was made by G.Purevbat, who had the idea of  building this temple. He used his collections of nature’s unique shaped rocks, tree roots, and other unique things to create these animals where he first saw them in his meditation dreams.

On the second floor of the temple there is museum called strange things where there is Purevbat’s collections of strange animal’s real exhibits. For example, there is an anaconda’s skin, giant crocodile’s skin, 1 skull of unicorn, 4 horned ram, 6 horned antelopes, 1 horned mountain goat, 6 horned pig, 5 headed fish with their description of where they found.

After visiting the temple and the museum, travelers can hike by the hiking trails where they are able to see weird shaped different natural rocks and trees.

Töv, This temple is located 100 km away to the north-west of Ulaanbaatar on the mountainside of rocky and woody mountain.
