Amarbayasgalant Monastery

Amarbayasgalant Monastery


Erdenet, Mongolia (MN)
The Amarbayasgalant Monastery (Mongolian: Амарбаясгалант хийд, Mongolian script: Amurbayasqulangtu keyid) or "monastery of tranquil felicity", once one of the three largest Buddhist centres in Mongolia is located near the Selenge River in the Iven Valley, at the foot of Mount Büren-Khaan in Baruunbüren sum (district) of Selenge Province in northern Mongolia. The architectural design belongs to G. Zanabazar and the monastery itself was built to honour the memory of him. Looking for a site for building, the exploratory group met two boys, Amur and Bayasqulangtu, playing in a steppe, and decided to build the future monastery at that site and name the monastery after those children.
