Travel documentary pictures are intended only to show atmosphere of the places, I would not call them as my portfolio.
My favourites pictures are in section to pphoto - mainly Photography of people from their ordinary everyday life.
The monastery of Erdene Zuu is surrounded by a wall of 400m from the side, with 108 "chorten" or stupas. Inside, a set of grouped around three magnificent temples monuments give us an idea of the splendor of the scene in the 19th century! | Kharkhorin | Kharkorum | Chijd
Lonely planet says: It was founded in 1586 by Altai Khaan, Erdene Zuu (Hundred Treasures) and it was the first Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. It had between 60 and 100 temples, about 300 gers inside the walls and, at its peak, up to 1000 monks in residence.
