Sacred Sites of Mongolia

This document discusses issues of sustainable development and ecology from a religious perspective. It describes the cooperative effort of the World Bank, the World Wildlife Fund, and the Alliance for Religions and Conservation to preserve the Mongolian environment in the post-Soviet era. Modern conservation efforts have been supported by the environmental reverence, deification, and overall respect which is foundational to traditional Mongolian belief systems and Buddhism in the country. In addition to a general overview, the publication details several sacred Mongolian mountains. The document includes a Mongolian translation adjacent to the English original.
