Chinggis Khan’s birthday observed on November 4

The anniversary of the birth of Chinggis Khan will be celebrated on November 4, as a public holiday. Last year the anniversary was celebrated on November 14. Because the holiday is held on the first day of the first winter month according to the lunar calendar, the annual celebration of his controversial birthday changes every year.
To celebrate the holiday an award ceremony for the Chinggis Khaan Order will be held, an award honoring the most outstanding national figures who have contributed greatly to the development of Mongolia. The President of Mongolia will present the honoree with a medal. The recipient was selected earlier this year.
This year’s recipient is the 14th Prime Minister of Mongolia, Dumaa Sodnom, a prominent economist, financier, former Minister of Finance, and Chairman of the Ministerial Council. He is also celebrating his 80th birthday this year.
The Chinggis Khaan Order award ceremony will take place at the Government House from 11:40 to 1:40 p.m. and will be broadcast live on local TV channels. Also considered National Pride Day, a traditional wrestling tournament featuring 128 competitors will be also organized.
