It is an extinct volcano of Dariganga soum in Sukhbaatar province, 1354 meters high and is worshiped by Dariganga people, representatives of one of the ethnic groups living in six southern soums of Suhbaatar aimag. The mountain was proclaimed as ‘The mountain to worship’ in 1913 by decree of Bogd Khaan, Mongolian religious leader. In 2004, it became a ‘Majestic mountain to worship’. Women are not allowed to go to the top of the mountain, but to a lower place.
