Khar Balgas Ordu Baliq or the Black ruins is the ancient capital of Uigur Khanate. Arkhangai Aimag. Khocho Tsaidam, Hoshoo tsaidam, Khocho tsaidam monument, Kultegin monument.




Kultegin Monument. When Chinggis Khaan decided to move his capital to Kharakhorum, he was well aware that the region had already been capital to successive nomad empires. About 20km north-east of Khar Balgas (as the crow flies) lies the remainder of yet another of these pre-Mongol empires, the Turkic khaganate. All that's left of the khaganate is the 3m-high inscribed monument of Kultegin (684-731), the khagan (ruler) himself. The monument was raised in AD 732 and is inscribed in Runic and Chinese script. You can see a copy of the stele in the entrance of the National Museum of Mongolian History. Just over 1km away is another monument to Bilge Khagan (683-734), younger brother of Kultegin. Ten years after the death of Bilge the Turkic khaganate was overrun by the Uighurs.

The memorial complex is located on left Orkhon riverside in 45 km north from an ancient Karakorum city, in 400 km southwest from Ulaanbaatar, the present capital of Mongolia at N47º33´ - E102º49´

A stele, a square stone, stone supports are on the site . Other components are kept in museum warehouses. A head of Kultegins marble statue is kept in the Mongolian Archeologic Institute, and face of a head of his wifes marble statue is stored in the National Historical Museum, Mongolia. A stone sculpture with bent right knee is kept in the Hermitage, St.-Petersburg, Russia.
