Lunar new year

zolgolt

Every year the Mongolians celebrate “Tsagaan Sar” or New Year between winter and spring (the exact date depends on the lunar calendar). Usually, it is held at new moon at the end of January or in February. The holiday is celebrated throughout Mongolia for three days. Tsagaan Sar is a holiday that celebrates the end of winter and serves to welcome a flourishing new year. It symbolizes a healthy, wealthy life. People start their preparations for Tsagaan Sar one month before hand. Families make several hundred to several thousands of buuz (dumpling cooked by steaming), bansh (small dumpling cooked by boiling): they prepare plenty of food for all relatives, neighbors and friends that visit the family. The gers, barns and yards of animals must be as clean as possible. Women make new deels (a traditional item of clothing) for every family member.

    Day #4 Visit to Kharkhorim / Ancient city of Mongolian empire /
    We will drive about 2 hours to the Kharkhorim city. It`s seem like small town but keeping lots of history. One of the attractive spot is Erdenezuu monastery. Abtai Sain Khan, ruler of the Khalkh Mongols and grandfather of Zanabazar, the first Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, ordered construction of the Erdene Zuu monastery in 1585 after his meeting with the 3rd Dalai Lama and the declaration of Tibetan Buddhism as the state religion of Mongolia. Planners attempted to create a surrounding wall that resembled a Tibetan Buddhist rosary featuring 108 stupas but this objective was probably never achieved. The monastery was damaged in 1688 during one of the many wars between Dzungars and Khalkh Mongols. Locals dismantled the wooden fortifications of the abandoned monastery. It was rebuilt in the 18th century and by 1872 had a full 62 temples and housed up to 1000 monks.
