Kharkhorin
 
Kharkhorin

The city of Kharkhorin of today is located at the same place where Genghis Khan had planned his capital. At the time, however, the city was only erected after his death. His grandson Kublai Khan then again moved his court to what today is Bejing in China. Some time later the Manchu destroyed Kharkhorin. Only a few stone sculptures of turtles give a visible indication of past glory.

The Kharkhorin of today is a small settlement with little focus on tourism. The Ger camps are rather situated near Erdene-Zuu and other attractions. The locals in the town stay mostly among each other.

As a reference to the great historical importance of the place, discussions on moving the capital of Mongolia back to Kharkhorin again from Ulaanbaatar have been running for some time.
