About This Project

TURTLE ROCK

The turtle shaped rock with 25 m height is placed in the area of Terelj National Park. This rock has been called with “Mungut Khad” since the ancient time. However, the name “Turtle Rock” became very familiar to the people now.  As mentioned in the legend, this special shaped rock was the place where Galdan Boshugtu, Mongolian historical khan was saved when he was fighting with Manchu. When Galdan Boshugtu with his a few soldiers was staying near the Turtle Rock he kept all jewelries there only to save their life and run away west side. Since that time, this turtle shaped rock has been called Mungut Khad. Local people worship this rock and share food items putting them on the rock.
