Temple Of Princess /Gunjiin sum/

The Princess Temple is located near the Baruun Bayan river which is joining from the Tuul river, 1788 m above sea level in a beautiful green forest which is surrounded by beautiful rocky mountains. The Temple was built by Prince Dondovdorj who was the grandson of Tusheet Khan Chakhundorj, in honor of his queen Khicheengui Amarlingui Princess who was the daughter of Enkh Amgalan the Manchu King. The King gave his 6th daughter princess to the influential khalkha Prince Dondovdorj as a gift in 1697.

But that movement was a forethoughtful secret policy of Manchu King through her daughter. But the Princess respected and followed mongolian custom which is known " One should obey all rules of the country where he or she lives" so she did, she loved mongolians and her husband and she took much care of Mongolia neglecting her father's order of being spy among mongolians and remained true to her husband and to all Mongolians. Because of that she was poisoned by Manchu King's Soldiers in order of her father the Manchu King. "Khicheengui Amarlangui" it's a title of the Princess which means "Peaceful and Intelligent". Mongolians built the burial temple in honor of the Khicheengui Amarlingui Princess in 1740. The Temple used to have monks and run their religious activities till 1930.
