Tour Overview

The princess temple was built as a resting place for a Manchurian princess who married a Mongolian noble in 1699. Located 120km from Ulaanbaatar, it can be reached after crossing river Tuul amidst beautiful pine tree forests. The temple sadly suffered from the hands of grave robbers. Remains of the temple ruins can be visited to this day where the walls from the local fortress remain.
