Museum of Danzan Ravjaa information
The life and achievements of Noyon Khutagt Danzan Ravjaa (1803–56), a well-known Mongolian writer, composer, painter and medic who was born about 100km southwest of Sainshand, are honoured in this small but well-put-together museum. Look out for the small glass jar which contains Danzan Ravjaa’s bones; his mummified body was burned along with his monastery in the 1930s.
