Local people living in Bulgiin tokhoi showed us a place where their grandparents had told them temple(s) existed. No remnants were found at all. There is a residence on the place, which was shown to the surveyors. This is very near to Ulaanbaatar (Songino Khairkhan and Khan uul districts) and there have been many yurts and houses in the area for decades, which explains why there are no remnants.

Notes :
The grandparents of the local herder being interviewed told him that a monastic site operated in this place up to when they were teenagers. Probably it was in the 1920-30s as the grandparents were about 80 years old. A Chinese burial place is said to be near the area. According to the book L Khench-Yaakhav: Altan Nutag, pp 23-24, Maaramba Tserendorj was given the title “Dari Ekh (CH)” by the 8th Jevtsündamba Khutagt. He was a famous monk and doctor. He was born in the area of Altanbulag sum. He founded the monastery at the Mountain Burkhant Uul. It had about 60 monks and was active until the 1930s. Dari ekh lam was executed during the purges.
