Status of site at time of survey :
On the site it is not clear which remains are of the old monastery, and which are much newer, as most walls are made of stone. On the west and on the right there are the remnants of the monks’ residences, with mud floors, and outline stones. (There are no brick or terracotta or roof tiles scattered on the site.) In the south-east there is the base of a big yurt. In the middle an area is fenced-off by stone walls, and in the middle of this the foundation of the old main assembly hall can seen. Just north of the main assembly hall foundation, there are some foundations of other buildings and a circular shaped foundation (maybe a stupa). On the right and left in the south of the courtyard there are two small stone and mud buildings, though they look old they may be restored. In front of this fenced-off area there is now a winter residence with a stone wall for sheltering animals. In the communist period a brigade was situated here
