Ganden Tegchenling is a major Geluk monastery in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia that has been actively revitatized since 1990. It emerged out of the many temples and monasteries of Khuree that were developed beginning in the 17th century. Gandan was part of the Baruun Khuree, or the western section of the monastic city.
