Notes :
See UBR 934 AM.pdf. According to Pürew (Mongol töriin golomt, p. 102.) Tsagaan Malgaitnii süm or the ‘Temple of the White Hat lamas’ was one of the Chinese temples situated in the south-east quarter (khoroolol) inside the walls of Maimaachen. It was also called Laliin süm (Tib. kla-klo), which means a Mohammedan temple. It was a temple of Chinese Moslems (dungan). According to Pürew’s book (Mongol töriin golomt, p. 102.), the Chinese temples were in the south-east part: in the corner of this area was an astrological temple, Odon süm (UBNR 945 NOT in Rinchen 945) and another temple called Kunziin süm or Künz bogdiin süm to honour Confucius (UBR 933 Rinchen 933) on its left and a Moslem temple, Tsagaan malgaitiin süm (UBR 934 Rinchen 934) nearby on its west. The Chamber of Solicitors (Zargachnii yaam), the administrative board of Maimaachen, was situated on west of these temples but east of the Moslem temple. (On its west there was a poplar tree, which still stands on the west of Dar’ ekhiin süm.) No other data was found on this temple.
