Danzanravjaa Museum

The Museum

The Danzanravjaa Museum was established in 1991 in honour of the fifth Goviin Dogshin Noyon Khutagt ("Terrible Noble Saint of the Gobi"), one of the greatest and most unusual intellectuals in Mongolian history. The museum preserves and displays Danzanravjaa's original artistic works and literary manuscripts, along with his books, religious items, theatrical costumes, personal possessions, and similar objects illustrating his life and work.

Upon Danzanravjaa's death in 1856, his disciple Sh. Balchinchoijoo (Ishlodon) assumed the role of takhilch, or curator or the objects associated with Danzanravjaa's life. This curatorship was passed on within the same family for a further five generations until the religious purge of 1938, when orders were given to destroy Khamar Monastery and all of its contents. The curator at the time, G.Tudev, secretly took action to rescue the objects of Danzanravjaa's legacy before their destruction could take place. Entering the monastery surreptitiously each night, he packed and removed crates full of books, theatrical costumes, artworks, and religious and personal items used by the Noyon Khutagt, ultimately saving 64 wooden chests-out of a total of 1500. He secretly buried these crates in various locations in the vicinity of Khamar Monastery. The crates remained hidden until 1990 when, with end of socialist rule in Mongolia, Tudev's grandson Altangerel dug up the objects and founded the Danzanravjaa Museum.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
