Amarbayasgalant monastery Mongolia
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Amarbayasgalant monastery

In the Selenge province, Amarbayasgalant monastery, "the monastery of quiet felicity", is one of the rare monasteries still almost intact, although it has been looted. Built in the 18th century in order to shelter Zanabazar's body, an important religious man, its style is almost essentially Chinese. The ochre colour of this sumptuous succession of temples contrasts with the background greenery and forest-covered mountains.
