Notes :
The local people call the monastery as Burgastyn khiid (temple of Burgast) in accordance with its location in the place called Burgast. In the list of Academician B.Rinchen it is recorded as Achaa lamyn khiid (temple of Achaa lama). The correct name is Gachin lamyn khiid (temple of Gachin lama), because the monastery was founded by a Tibetan Gachen lama in the late 19th century. In the list of Academician B.Rinchen it is also recorded as Gavj lamyn khiid (temple of Gavj lama). After departure of Gachen Lama to Tibet, the monastery was headed by local lama Galsanjamts whom locals called Gavj lama. It was affiliated to Daichin Vangiin khuree. Dandar agramba (ngagrimpa) became a monk at this monastery when he was 5 years.
