Lamas used to come here at certain periods of the year for purposes such as their creative work and meditation. However, the communist purge in Mongolia destroyed the Aryapal Meditation temple. Later in the late 90s, it was renovated and now is open to the public all year round.

When you go up by the monastery’s stairs, you get to have a stunning view of the area. For each season, the valley of this monastery has individual beautiful views and charm. During spring and summer, many colorful flowers fill the valley. During autumn bright yellow and orange colors are abundant. While, during wintertime, sparkling snow blankets cover the whole area.
