Welcome to Altanbulag
Altanbulag (Алтанбулаг) is a small, peaceful border town opposite the Russian city of Khyakhta with an immediately noticeable golden-domed church. Both Khyakhta and Altanbulag are of some historical importance to Mongolians. In 1915 representatives from Russia, China and Mongolia met in Khyakhta to sign a treaty granting Mongolia limited autonomy. At a meeting in Khyakhta in March 1921, the Mongolian People’s Party was formed by Mongolian revolutionaries in exile, and the revolutionary hero Sükhbaatar was named Minister of War.
