‘Pearl Bead’ unveils its findings from Dornogobi

By E.Dari


The cultural research expedition Suvdan Sondor, or Pearl Bead-8, conducted its eighth research expedition through the territory of Dornogobi Province last May. The expedition team is dedicated to studying the historic and cultural heritage found across the vast Mongolian territory, motivating public participation in the preservation of its heritage, accumulating funds and an archive of research, and developing natural, historic and cultural tourism in Mongolia.

The expedition was initiated by the Academy of Culture and Poetry and the Academy of Luvsandanzanravjaa, with organizational support from the Governor’s Office of Dornogobi.

The expedition team unveiled their findings and exhibited photographs of finds from their journey at the National Museum of Mongolia. This project, first organized by academics including poet G.Mend-Ooyo, the People’s Writer S.Erdene, People’s Artist N.Chultem, D.Tserensodnom and archaeologist D.Navaan, was on hiatus before it continued its work in Dornogobi Province. Revitalization of the project falls within the frames of the 210th anniversary of the Fifth Ferocious Saint Danzan Ravjaa’s reincarnation.

Expedition organizers emphasized that Pearl Bead-8 acquired the treasury of the historic, natural and cultural heritages of some 10 units of Dornogobi Province and studied opportunities to develop tourism in Dornogobi.

The Pearl Bead-8 expedition was undertaken by 20 researchers and scientists, including poet G.Mend-Ooyo, member of the World Arts and Culture Academy S.Dulam, and B.Boldsaikhan, a systems theory researcher.

During the expedition, several new heritages which were not previously documented in the project’s database, were discovered.
