Kharkhorin (Karakorum)
In the mid-13th century, Karakorum was a happening place. Chinggis Khaan established a supply base here and his son Ögedei ordered the construction of a proper capital, a decree that attracted traders, dignitaries and skilled workers from across Asia and even Europe.
The good times lasted around 40 years until Kublai moved the capital to Khanbalik
(later called Beijing), a decision that still incites resentment among some Mongolians. Following the move to Beijing and the subsequent collapse of the Mongol empire, Karakorum was abandoned and then destroyed by vengeful Manchurian soldiers in 1388.
Whatever was left of Karakorum was used to help build, in the 16th century,  ErdeneZuu monastery, which itself was badly damaged during the Stalinist purges.
The rather nondescript Soviet-built town of Kharkhorin was built a couple of kilometers away from Erdene-ZuuKhiid, and there is little of interest in the town itself.
