Notes :
The place is called Bayankhangai though it has been recorded as Bayankhairkhan by B.Renchin which could have been a mistake. The mixture of remnants from previously- established Erdene sum centre’s buildings and the current brigade centre and fences has contributed to the disappearance of the temple’s location. From the current brigade centre, 3 km. westward toward Bayankhangai, historically worshiped Zaisan khangai is located.
