Every first day of the
initial winter month, according to the Mongolia Lunar Calendar marks the birth
anniversary of the Great Chinggis Khaan. On this particular day, we briefly
talked with a few citizens about their views on Chinggis Khaan.


“Chinggis Khaan is the
Man of the Millennium. He was a sincere person who kept his word. He excelled
in ruling politics. We know from the history of the world that there are many
ways to govern. However, Chinggis Khaan ruled by heart, making his enemies his
friend. We should be proud that such an emperor was the one in the world.” – Kh.
Enkhtuvshin, Ulaanbaatar city.


“Because of this
person, we have the land to step on, the air to breathe, and the mother
language to speak. Whenever I am traveling, I am proud to say that I am the
descendant of the Great Chinggis Khaan.” – E. Khongorzul, Khentii


I read the “Secret History of the
Mongols” many times in my childhood. The philosophies and teachings of
Chinggis Khaan are still relevant today. Therefore, the birth anniversary of
our Great Khaan is solemnly celebrated all over the country.” – B.
Choijindorj, Darkhan-Uul aimag.


“After the
presidential decree on the portrait of Chinggis Khaan, every secondary school
and organization of our Gobi-Altai aimag followed the decree. I would like to
urge all the children and youth to study the philosophy and history of Chinggis
Khaan.” – Z. Gantulga, Gobi-Altai aimag.


“I have been
interested in the world and Mongolian history since childhood. In 1996,
Washington Post declared Chinggis Khaan as Man of the Millennium 1996. The UN
General Assembly adopted a special resolution in November 2005 to celebrate the
800th anniversary of the foundation of the Great Mongol Empire worldwide. I
participated in the essay contest about Chinggis Khaan in 12th grade and took
3rd place” – B.Battushig, Ulaanbaatar city.
