Monks in Old Temple :

Notes :
1.Ayurzana was a monk. He lived until 1934-1935 and was a historical individual. He was probably born at the end of the XIX century. He was the assistant to the commander of Khovd area. At the beginning of XX century he became secular, got the title of beis and started doing business. That`s why he called Kharlag beis (not a lama) Ayurzana. When the first trade cooperative established in Uvs aimag in 1924, he helped it with a building and capital. Temple of Kharlag beis was in a shape of Chinese temple. There is clear foundation of the ger temple in the fence. Around here there are gers. Watchman lives at the small Chinese shaped building on the west side. The Aimag Governer is planning to repair the temple-museum.
