The book features over 50 highlights of the works displayed in the Zanabazar Fine Arts Museum, Choijin Lama Temple Museum and Bogd Khaan Palace Museum in Ulaanbaatar. Each highlight features detailed background information and a full color picture of the object. In the 118 pages also a short, but very understandable glossary of Buddhist and Mongolian terms is included.
All three museums included in the book are located in historically interesting buildings. The Bodg Khan Green Winter Palace, was home to the last Great King or Khan of Mongolia, and includes a big Buddhist complex. Together with the Choijin Lama Temple Museum it is one of the only sites that survived the Stalinistic purges of the 1930’s. If you don’t have a chance to visit them or if you would like to have a tangible memory of your trip, this book is a must!
