• Taikhar rock

Taikhar Chuluu Rock Formation revered amongst the locals and a regular spot for tourists who pass through the region. Taikhar Chuluu rock is granite pinnacle that stands 25 meter tall from the surrounding flat landscape. The rock was once covered in Turkic and Mongolian inscription, however time and graffiti have led these to become illegible. Far more interesting are the local legends regarding origins of the great rock. A long time ago there was a hero known as Bohbileg strong and wise. Suddenly the ground shook and a giant snake began to emerge from the earth. Bohbileg fought the snake, pushing it back into the earth from whence it came. Taking a rock, Bohbileg sealed the mouth of the cave and trapped the monster below the ground. The rock remains in situ to this day.
