Status of site at time of survey :
A new stupa was erected probably in 2006. Maybe it stands on ruins. There is a foundation of a building southwest of the stupa and a huge ovoo, where pot fragments, stones with Tibetan mantras, blue bricks and other stones are piled up. A stupa might have been stood west of the ovoo. The other section of the complex was situated on the foot of the hill, southwest of the other sections. Maybe a wooden temple, dwellings of monks, and prayer wheels once stood there. However, this is surmise as only a few blue bricks were found. It could be that the buildings were made of wood, which would explain why so little remains. There is a well on the south and an ovoo on the north.
