"Ongi Temple" Ongi by Willettsworld

Ongi Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 45 photos

Ongi is located in Dundgovi Aimag south of Ulaanbaatar and north of the Gobi Desert and is the location of the Ongi Temple. It was once a large monastery complex with about 1000 lamas but was destroyed during Stalin's purges in the 1930's. I came here on the 6th day of my 12-day tour around Mongolia and stayed in a ger camp just the other side of a hill from the temple.
