Bayankhongor aimag is situated in the South-Western part of Mongolia, and occupies the high plateau of the South Khangai mountains, South-Eastern mountains of Gobi-Altai range, the middle part of depression of the great lakes of Western Mongolia, and the main part of Trans-Altai desert.
 

Bayankhongor. Population 23,000. Elevation 1859m. This sprawling capital was established in 1942. Located close to the border with Ovorkhangai and Arkhangai aimags, Bayankhongor city is where the Khangai Nuruu, with several peaks of 3000m or more, meets the northern Gobi. It's a good place to stop during the long haul to or from the West, to stand explorations to more remote regions to the South, or to go on a day trip to the nearby springs at Shargaljuut.

PLACES TO VISITED.
  • Lamyn Gegeenii Dedlen Khiid. There was no ancient monastery on this particular site, but 20km to the East of Bayankhongor city, a monastery existed with the same name. This monastery complex once housed up to 10.000 monks, making it one of the largest in the country. As elsewhere in Mongolia, the communist police descended on the place in 1937 and carted off the monks, who were never seen again. The temple was leveled and today nothing remains. Sadly, the present-day monks seem to have little knowledge of the old temple's history.
    The current monastery, built in 1991, is home to only 40 monks. The main temple is built in the shape of a ger, although it's actually made of brick. The main hall features a statue of Sakyamuni flanked by a green and white Tara.
  • The Aimag Museum, located inside the sports stadium in the park, is well laid-out and worth a visit. There is a good display on Buddhist art, featuring two lovely statues of Tara, some fine old scroll paintings, tsam (lama dance) masks and costumes.
    Head across the street to the Natural History Museum. The highlights here are some dinosaur fossils and a replica Tarbosaurus skeleton.
