This is the view of Erdene Zuu monastery from a hill across the way. The turtle below marks one corner of the ancient capital, and the other turtle is at the far back corner of the monastery











Apparently, some young monks were sowing wild oats, so the older monks decided to teach them a lesson. One monk was emasculated and this "monument" was erected to remind all of their vows!






When a favorite horse dies, many bring the head in honor to this special place.
