Modern day Mongolia is a true dichotomy as half the people remain in the countryside tending their horses, camels, goats, sheep and cows retaining all the old traditions whilst on the other hand the other half have migrated to the bustling city Ulaanbaatar.

 

Ulaanbaatar

The pine covered mountains, wide boulevards, squares, parks and ger communities, which surround the capital monastery and cover the slopes north of the city, combine to give the city a spacious, rustic feel.

Ulaanbaatar, historically known as Urguu, was established in 1639 by a lord of the Khalkha tribe, Tusheet Khan Gombodorj, when he named his five year old son Zanabazar head of the Buddhist religion in Mongolia. The Nomadic encampment shifted from place to place until 1778 when it settled in its present location north of the Bogd Khan Mountain.

Urguu grew quickly, eventually becoming the religious, commercial and administrative center of the country. Despite the town’s importance, most of the citizens lived in gers, grouped according to social position, occupation and nationality.   

There were districts for monks, lords, merchants, craftsmen and Russian and Chinese inhabitants, all covered by the living Buddha, Bogd Khan.

In 1924, after the people’s revolution, the city was renamed Ulaanbaatar (Red Hero) in honor of Sukhbaatar, a hero of the revolution.
