Status of site at time of survey :
As it was a small Zod assembly, gathering in a yurt, there is nothing left on the site. Later people marked the site where the Zod yurt temple was situated by putting stones around the site in a circle. Now some yurts stands around it, they showed the site between their yurts and said they have just removed the stones marking it for putting them under their fireplaces. The well called Zaraagiin zülegt is about 200 meters on the north-west of the site. The place is called Zaraagiin Zülegt.

Notes :
Namsrain Dovdonchuluu, born 1921, had been a monk in Beliin jas. He said that it was another Zod assembly in the area around from the other one situated at Khögtst (ДГХВ 092). About 10 zod masters gathered here, male and female also. It was situated by a place called Zaraagiin Zülegt, at a well having the same name. These Zod masters used to gather in a yurt here, there was no temple building. According to him, there was a zoch called Ishdoo here, and Kh. Banzar zoch (presently the abbot of Namdoldechenlin Red Sect monastery in Bayankhoshuu, Ulaanbaatar) also gathered here as well as in Khögtst. No other data was gained on the assembly. A local old man living about 18-20 kilometers south west of the site, informed us about the site, confirming that it was very near to the well there, on its south-east and that it had a few zoch masters. The families that put up their yurts by the site and used the stones marking the site for their fireplace also confirmed that the assembly was situated there. Data from the book of A. Lkhagva #001: According to A. Lkhagva, the author of the book, Derengiinkhen (Ulaanbaatar, 2004), zoch masters lived in Zaraagiin zülegt and Naran khögtst (p. 39.). They gathered together in autumn for many days to held ceremonies. Puntsag and Ishdoo were the main masters of the communities. In Zaraagiin Zülegt different types of dances were performed, too.
