The biggest lake in the eastern region of Mongolia is Buir Lake. The lake is located 311 km distant from the east of Choibalsan city and is the fresh water lake where the most water birds gather in Mongolia." In 2004, the Buir Lake was included in the Ramsar List of Wetlands of International Importance according to the Ramsar Convention." The convention is the one of the biggest documents for conservation and sustainable utilization of wetlands, especially the place where water birds settle down most. There is 3-5 meter long sand embankment which was created from waves in the south of the lake. The average depth of the Buir Lake is seven meters. The Khalkh Gol River flows in the Buir Lake while Orshuun River flows out of it. There are 34 species of six clans of fish, 49 species of floating water weed, 5 species of floating animals and 4 species of pearl oysters in the lake. The Buir Lake is the lake with the most fish and most types of animals and birds in Mongolia. In addition, the longest water border of Mongolia continues in the lake. If you decide to travel to the richest lake in Mongolia, it is located 942 km distant from Ulaanbaatar.

Photos: Mongolia’s millennial monks lead revival of Buddhism
Jun 07, 2018 11:04 IST
Amarbayasgalant Monastery in Mongolia was home to around 800 monks before the Soviet era. In the decades after the anti-religion purges of 1937, half the monastery’s monks fled, while most of those who remained were killed. The fate of Buddhism in Mongolia today rests on young shoulders in a country where monasteries are increasingly being run by millennial monks. They hope that one day the monastery will be full of enthusiastic children committed to a journey on the path of devotion laid out by the Buddha.

Senior Buddhist monk Lobsang Tayang walks outside the Amarbayasgalant Monastery in Mongolia. Buddhism is one of the world’s oldest religions but its fate in Mongolia now rests on young shoulders. The country’s monasteries are increasingly run by millennial monks, the first generation to come of age after decades of religious repression under the Soviet system wiped out almost all Buddhist clergy.

Stars twinkle over the Buddhist Monastery during a moonlit night. Amarbayasgalant Monastery, whose name means “monastery of the quiet felicity” is located near the Selenge River at the foot of Mount Burenkhan. It is one of the rare monasteries that have partly avoided the destruction of 1937 by the Soviets. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)

The monastery is a sprawling complex deep in the endless grasslands, 35 kilometers from the nearest road. It was home to around 800 monks before the Soviet era. After the purges began, half the monastery’s monks fled, while most of those who remained were killed. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)

Temuulen and Batkhan Tuul look at birds nesting under the roof of the main temple. The young monks are struggling to maintain crumbling monastery buildings that date from the 18th century, and are a UNESCO world heritage site. Today just 28 of over 40 original temples remain. Flocks of nesting pigeons stain the walls with faeces and leave the monks, whose religion forbids killing, in despair. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)

Young monk Temuulen gets dressed after waking up at in his room at the monastery. After democracy came to Mongolia in 1990, monasteries and schools were re-established by survivors, many already then in their 70s. Now fewer than 40 are left, and the oldest, the head of the monastery, is just 35. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)

Lobsang Tayang wakes his students, 10-year-old Batkhan Tuul and 11-year-old Temuulen, at around seven to test their memory of the scriptures and chanting which fills the rest of the morning. In the afternoon, the younger monks can study topics such as mathematics and literature - if a teacher can be found. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)

Temuulen watches a fellow monk blow a seashell as a call to prayers. Such a choice of career which involves a strict lifestyle devoid of earthly attachments is unusual in the modern world, and finding children willing to sign up can be tricky. The choice is often made as much by parents as their children, and is rarely a straightforward task. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)

Many monks who grow up at the monastery yearn for the outside world, which they are only allowed to visit twice a year for two weeks. The monastery has 3G internet access, but mobile telephones are restricted to those older than 25. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)
Lobsang Rabten oversees an evening prayer recital session. “It’s easy to chop down a forest, right?” Lobsang Rabten, the monastery’s second-in-command said. “But it takes a long time for new trees to grow back.” He hopes to return the monastery one day to its former glory. (Thomas Peter / REUTERS)

Lobsang Tayang steps out onto the terrace of the main temple. While Lobsang reconciles between being a student and teacher, the younger generation of monks like Temuulen is committed to the future of the monastery so that more children come and join in the journey of its rejuvenation.

"Days of Uvs" in Kyzyl, Russia, in Tuva, Russia. It's a good thing. Meetings, conferences, exhibitions, merchandise, concerts, sports and wrestling ... Before the wrestling started, it was a good drowsiness. The lawn of the stadium and its surrounding trees are green. Shojgu's pictures are everywhere. For the people of this locality, almost Subutai is a heroic post-hero.
