  • Shaman Heritage
  • Shaman Heritage

    Mongolia is rich in shamanistic heritage, both tangible and intangible. Through Mongolian shamanism, we can have a complete understanding of the science of nomadic culture. This would include ideas of tngri (heaven) worship, the sacred peak mountains ritual, sacred waters worship, fire worship, and study of parallel psychological meaning of the visible and invisible worlds. Through these concepts, people can better know about the supernatural consciousness of nomadic life. Falling into a trance through shamanistic rituals means travelling to a spiritual place either through transforming themselves into a bird or riding an animal that will carry them to the place they are seeking.

  • Nadam Festival
  • Nadam Festival

    'Naadam', which means game or contest, is a traditional Mongolian festival held every summer. Before and after the state Naadam is held in Ulaanbaatar, every village holds its own Naadam in their local community. The main events of Naadam contain horseracing, wrestling, and archery, which are related to the nomadic culture of Mongolians. Naadam was transmitted from generation to generation and is considered an essential expression of Mongolian cultural identity. Naadam was inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2010.
