Status of site at time of survey :
An unfinished building made of stone is visible on the site. There are other piles where most probably stones were stored for building the temple and other buildings. Only some blue bricks were found there with round-shape decorations. The piles could be places of wooden buildings, but it is absolutely not clear if there was an operating monastery here or not. There are two courtyards on the south and a shelter for animals on an old ruin. There are scattered pot fragment which could be old or new. There is an ovoo north of the site.

Notes :
Data from the book ‘Ölziigöö Khairlasan Ölziit nutag mini’ Ulaanbaatar, 2004, p. 93. According to this book, on the north of the mountain called Khönjil, there was a brook called Buyantiin Süüjiin Bulag, and here there was a monastery site. It says that here a monastery was started to be built from stone, but it was not finished and left abounded. It is presumed that this was not a working monastery.
