There is an ancient city
ruin including over 50 building remains called Olon Baishin southeast from
Kheseg Baishin behind Busyn Chuluu and in front of Olongyn Us in Ikh Khet
Soum, Dornogobi province.
There are many

to be a support of the column. There were no traces of stele among the findings
but a stone trough and stupa-shaped establishments were found. Both Kheseg

Russian tourist Timkovskii who travelled the sight in 1821-22 recorded that

who passed through this area in 1847 heard of talk: “groom of Manchu king had

talk among the locals of Togoontumur khaan in connection with the place. After
his return from China, may be, Togoontumur khaan had lived for several years in
this place and then some buildings were probably built after it was
