The monastery was established in the 1890s under the name of Erdene duuregch vangiin otgiin khiid. In the 1900s, it was moved to the place called Burgaltain Khukh gol. It was moved again after 1905 to the place called Khorigiin am in order to place the monastery away from the presence of non-Buddhist white Russians who fled to Mongolia during 1905.
