Arkhangai taikhar stone
Taikhar Chuluu is a coarse-grained granite rock located on the banks of the Tamir River in Ikh Tamir soum of Arkhangai aimag. There are many inscriptions from the 7th-9th centuries. In terms of terrain, Taikhar Chuluu has a high terrace (black shore) in the south and north, and a low mountain (Ulaan Tolgoi) with cliffs facing the Taikhar rock behind it. Many years ago, a large amount of water flowed between the south and north shores. The rock was in a continuous position to the south. There are many myths and scientific explanations for this stone statue. There is a resort next to it, so be sure to visit. Also inside the house, you will see Mongolian traditional tables and chairs.
