This place called Uvurkhushuutyn Bulgyn Ekh is the central point
of Mongolia and it is situated at the coordinate of northern latitude of 460521 and
eastern longitude of 1030501 13,5km south from Burd
Soum, Uvurkhangai Aimag. In 1979 a geographer, Professor Sharavyn Shagdar
determined this point and had a stone cairn raised marking the location in
1989. Since then the locals has expanded it by erecting a stupa and a fence.
The central point is located at the junction of the centre of 2 circles, one of
which passes through the most southern and northern point of Mongolia and the
other one which passes through the most eastern and western point of the
country. By using a same method, all Aimags and 318 Soums of Mongolia had their
central points pinpointed and few of them had a monument built marking the
location. Sh.Shagdar determined the central point of Mongolia by using a
geographic coordinate system, a rectangle method, a quadratic equation as well
as a circle method.
