Khovd Province honors intangible cultural heritage

Ikh Aksal dance is noted in history as the first dance that praised men, and is honored as the king of all Mongolian traditional dances.
A monument dedicated to Ikh Aksal is being erected in Bulgan soum of Khovd Province. A resident of Khovd Province, B.Unenbat, first conceived the idea for the monument and decided to build it.
The four meter tall statue depicts a dancing, well-built Torguud man (ethnic group). The statue signifies the bravery, resolve, intelligence and grace of men.
The monument will be the first to show Mongolian pride, nationality, tradition, livelihood, and intangible cultural and historical heritage.
