Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The Clock Temple was located in Khaistai Lavring - the summer palace of the Bogd Khaan. It stood next to the Bogd Khaan’s palace from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.


It was a two-storey structure built on the west side of the summer palace right next to the palace walls. The upper level had a cuckoo clock with its frame that was as big as the size of the upper frame of the Ikh Ger. Chimes were heard three times as the cuckoo bird used to emerge from the clock. 


Created by Mongolian craftsmen as dedication for the Bogd Khaan, the temple was later destroyed and only immortalized in photography.
