Erdenesiin Khuree is an arts and Mongolian Calligraphy center.
Erdenesiin Khuree is located in Kharkhorin, the former capital and administrative centre of the Mongol Empire during the great Khans period.
At that time, Kharkhorin was an important place at the crossroads cultures on the Silk Road.
It was at the creation of his empire, when Kharkhorim
was the capital, that Genghis Khan established
the Uyghur script as official.
This scrip, is called «ancient Mongolian», is the origin of the Mongolian calligraphy.
The Erdenesiin Khuree Center is in symbiosis with the Mongolian history and with Kharkhorum in order to preserve the traditional script and Mongolian calligraphy, which has been declared by UNESCO an intangible cultural heritage in need of urgent safeguarding.
Erdenesiin Khuree was established in 2019, under the guidance of a renowned Mongolian calligrapher.
It will open its doors to the public in July 2021
