Posted By : Admin/1003

The Burkhan Khaldun is a mountain of the Khentii Mountains in the Khentii aimag of Mongolia. The mountain itself and/or its proximity areas are rumored to be the birthplace of Genghis Khan, as well as the purported location of his tomb. The mountain is located in the 12,000 km² Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area established in 1992. It is considered the most sacred mountain in Mongolia, because it was first designated as sacred by Genghis Khan, although it previously had strong religious significance prior to Genghis Khan making it such a powerful landmark. This mountain is noted in Mongolian secret history which is historical note at Chinggis khan’s rule time.
