Description of location :
The site is close to the Nudengiin temple which is 3 km. northwest. There are hilltops which stand separated from each other and these hilltops surround two adjacent black mountains which create the visual effect of a “hump”. Locals call this mountain “Kholboo Uul”. A few bunches of elm trees are found on the western face of the two adjacent mountains and southwest of the temple site. At the back of these elms is a red hill which has a pointy top. The temple base, on which feather grass has densely grown, is found 25 km. east of the sum centre.
