Notes :
Dari ekh lamyn khiid was established originally in the 1800s in front of Suvargan tolgoi. The next reincarnation of Dari ekh lama moved the Dari ekh lamyn khiid from its original location to Undur Naidag mountain in 1898. He established a Manba datsang(monastic medical college), Jud datsang(tantric college) and Tsanid datsang (college for Buddhist philosophy). The monastery had four aimags as Tsetseglen, Sangai, Zoogoo and Dondov. The number of resident monks was around 200 to 300 monks. The main tutelary deity was Jamsran (Begtse Dharmapala). Tsam dance and sor performance used to take place in the first month of autumn. Maitreya procession used to conduct in Oct 15. An oracle used to be called upon by Dari ekh lama three times a year.
