89-year-old, is a meritorious worker of the Road Construction of Mongolia. When
I was demobilized from the army in 1950, I was employed in the stone crushing and gravel preparing
factory located at the place Uuliin Nuur (former name is Chuluun Toochig) and
worked in charge for equipment and tools of the prisoners who prepared the
stones by crushing them in this place and received those stones by measuring.
Those prisoners were placed in semi-whole shelters named Zemlyak and they
worked from 7 am to 9 pm. 12 pm – 13 pm, they made blasting and released the
rocks and stones.
In this place, 1000
cubic meters of crushed stones were prepared by the force of the Japanese
soldiers who were captured during the war of 1946 and those crushed stones were
used for constructing the road on the west of the National University of
Mongolia and 11,000 cubic meters of crushed stones required to construct the
Sukhbaatar square were prepared in this place in 1946-1947. Moreover, when
constructing the 15 km of long road from Central Post Office until the Airport,
the gravels were taken from here. In the beginning, they made blasting, sometimes
shot by the artillery to prepare and they collected the released stones using
the forces and labors of many people.
They recognized the
quality of the stones of this place and started using them so that there were
good traffic road engineers and professionals were among the Japanese soldiers.

When an ordinary man S.Ulziitogtokh
who worked in South Korea in 2005-2008 with the official labor contract returned
to Mongolia, he had an idea to change this place which already became a waste
and garbage point in 2009 as a garden. In 2012, he started making his private
investment in order to clean the wastes and recover lake.
The Lake was
successfully restored and the trees among the rocks were planted. Now, this
place has become a venue where citizens of Ger district spend their free. In
winter, people come there for ice skating and sail by boat in summer. In 2018,
about 400 units of the decorative and fruit trees and bushes of 19 types are
growing in the Mountain Lake.
Every year, about 6000
citizens come to this place and play by ice-skates in winters and sail by boat
in summers. Starting from 2016, the children started coming together with their
classmates and foreign tourists visit to get introduced with the activity. This
is the garden that has been created by the individual’s initiation, own
investment and capital.
Future purpose of S.Ulziitogtokh
is to construct the training buildings in the Mountain Lake where the sport
clubs such as ice hockey, figure skating, training place for ice rock climbers
in winters and wall climbers during summer time, special training centers for
learning the computer programs, foreign languages and other subjects/lessons
that are useful for the citizens.
