Conference on literature, history and ethnology takes place in Mongolia

AKIPRESS.COM - The "Literary Culture of Mongols: Chinggis Khaan Stele-800, Tsogt Taij Stone Insciption-400" conference was held at the Great Hall of the Chinggis Khaan National Museum of Mongolia on July 1, Montsame reports.

According to the Resolution of the government of Mongolia, the 800th anniversary of the "Stele of Chinggis Khaan" and the 400th anniversary of the "Tsogt Taij Stone Inscriptions" will be celebrated in 2024. As part of the celebration, the international scientific conference was held to promote Mongol studies and preserve and protect Mongolian literary heritages.

"Mongolians have a tradition of preserving their history, culture, and way of life by carving them onto stone. It is deeply commendable that we are studying these inscriptions from our past. Even now, Mongolians carve and erect stone statues. No nation on earth writes its records onto stones the same way as the Mongols. The historic feat of the farthest arrow shot made by Yesunge the Sharp is depicted on the Stele of Chinggis Khaan," Director of the National Council on Language Policy L. Dashnyam said.

Over 20 foreign and domestic researchers and scholars gave presentations at the conference. 

The Stele of Chinggis Khaan is a granite stele inscribed with a dedication to Yisüngge, nephew of Genghis Khan. It contains the first known inscription in Mongolian Script.

The Stone Inscriptions of Tsogt Khun-Taiji are regarded as one of the most iconic and important symbols of Mongolian script and literature. The monument consists of three stone inscriptions. The main inscription, dated 1624, is a poem carved on the smooth, vertical rock, which was composed by Prince Tsogt.
