Genghis Khan, a Mongolian hero famed throughout the world, is still worshipped and remembered by his people, and has over 16 million descendants in Asia today.

Secret bury prevailed in ancient Mongolia. There is no exception for Genghis Khan. Actually, the Genghis Khan Mausoleum is a Yi Guanzhong (a tomb containing personal staff the deceased used in his lifetime), but it still enjoys its significance. Tomb of Genghis Khan has become one of the main tour attractions in Mongolia now.
