Kharakhorin (Kharakorum)

Once the Kharkhorin was the capital city of the Great Mongol Empire under the name Kharakhorum. In 1220, Chinggis Khaan founded Kharakhorum city on the bank of the Orkhon river (present location of Kharkhorin village) , and the city was developed as the capital city of the Great Mongol Empire during Ogedei Khan’s reign. As the vast empire connected east and west, Kharakhorum was one of the most important cities in the history of world trade holding an intense impact on the Silk Road.
Kharkhorin was the capital city of Great Mongolia Empire in thirteenth century. It is located on the right bank of Orkhon river, 400 km south-west of Ulaanbaatar which is the current capital of Mongolia. All around this stronghold, craftsmen's and traders' quarters and other houses were gradually built, until, by about 1230, the area had taken on the appearance of a town.
The city had a surrounding wall with four stone turtles which two of them still exist witnessing centuries’ history and centuries’ ahead. The stone turtles used to symbolise longevity and solidarity of the city. The Great Mongol Empire was governed from Kharakhorum city until Khubilai Khan settled the capital in Beijing.
Back in the 13th century, Kharkhorin was constructed as a capital city which attracted traders, dignitaries and skilled workers from across Asia and even Europe.


ERDENE ZUU MONASTERY
In 1380, Kharkhorin was destroyed. But approximately two centuries later, on the same site, there arose the yurt of Avtai Khan, founder of the Erdene Zuu Monastery. The great circular platform which form its base is still visible today. The monastery of Erdene Zuu is a focal point in the history and culture of the Mongol people.
Another golden era of the region began in the summer of 1856, as the Erdene Zuu Monastery was built on the ruin of Kharakhorum city. By 1872 the monastery contained over 500 buildings including 62 temples and housed 1500 monks. Unfortunately, the majority of the temples and other buildings were destroyed during the political repression in the 1930s, as it happened to monasteries throughout Mongolia.
All but three of the temples in Erdene Zuu were destroyed during the purges and an unknown number of monks were either killed or sent to Siberian gulags. A surprising number of statues, tsam masks and thangkas were saved, however – possibly with the help of a few sympathetic military officers. The items were buried in nearby mountains, or stored in local homes (at great risk to the residents).
Besides paintings, ornaments and embroideries dating from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries, it houses a whole library of rare manuscripts and wood-block printed editions. Here, too, are preserved the works of the seventeenth-century painter and sculptor Zanabazar, great illustrator of the Buddhist canon and one of the first Mongol artists to have attained universal stature.

KHARAKHORUM MUSEUM
The Kharakhorum Museum was constructed at the Kharakhorum City Ruins located on the west bank of the Orkhon Valley in Mongolia with the support of the Government of Japan.

The area around the Kharakhorum Museum is registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage "Cultural Landscape of the Orkhon Valley".
The permanent exhibition at the Kharakhorum Museum consists of four parts: the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Ancient City Period, and the Mongol Empire Period, so that you can understand the history of the establishment of the Mongol Empire step by step. At the entrance, a model that reproduces the capital of the Mongol Empire, Kharkhorin, is also on display. In addition to Mongolian and English, the explanation plate has Japanese notation.
Thus, with its aims as to preserve and promote historic and cultural artifacts that relate to the World Heritage - Orkhon Valley Cultural Landscape and the ancient capital of Karakorum, the Kharakhorum Museum was established in 2010 with non-refundable aid from the Government of Japan. As of today, a total of 3,128 artifacts have been registered in the collection of the Kharakhorum Museum, of which over 80 percent is taken by various archeological findings.
