8300 citizens visit Governmental Palace

By M.ZOLJARGAL

The State Ceremony and Honour’s Hall have been open to the public for nine days. Over 8,300 local and foreign people have visited the Governmental Palace and seen the exhibition so far. Out of over 2,000 exhibits of the State History Museum, selected 150 were displayed at the hall. One of the most magnificent exhibits was undoubtedly a copper coin of Guyug Khan, which is the only one which exists in the whole world. A great number of foreigners and local residents have been visiting the hall. Senior citizen of Dornod Province, D.Puntsag, stated, “It’s my very first time visiting the State Governmental Palace of Mongolia. I’m feeling delighted. Many scarce artifacts of historical significance are being displayed here. I hope there will be more artifacts when I visit this hall next time.” A tourist from the USA, Robert Longo, claimed “I’m very delighted to see the monument of Chinggis Khan so close. Though the local guides aren’t explaining artifacts in English, I can understand as the introduction and information about them is written in English. The White House of our country is open to the public too.”
People will be able to visit Government Palace and the hall from 9.30 to 17.00 o’clock everyday but Monday. The Chief of the State Ceremony Department, J.Sereejav, claimed, “The citizens are expressing their honour for the Chinggis Khan Monument and seeing the exhibits which symbolize Mongolian state history. They seemed to be very glad to be able to pray in front of the Nine White Banners.
Until the new year, museum artifacts will be changed every month. Also, finds and artifacts, stored at the Institute of Archaeology in the Mongolian Academy of Sciences, of Khitan and Hunnu Era will be displayed at the hall in late September.
