Sights

All around the village, you'll see sand dunes creeping to the edge of Dariganga's grid. These natural landscape features are known as Moltsog Els (Молцог Элс) and stretch for some 20km into the countryside.

In the steppe around the town there are dozens of broken balbals (stones carved into roughly human shape, believed to be Turkic grave markers) – mostly dating back to the 13th- or 14th-century Mongol period. According to tradition, you should place an offering of food in the cup held in the statue’s left hand. The three main balbal sights, on the north edge of town, consist of the King and Queen, the nearby Son and, finally, a short walk away, the Bride, to whom women make offerings in the hope of having healthy babies.
