History

  • Eastern Kingdom, established by Khun tail who was a Khotogchin hero of Oird chorigos Aimag, appeared in the middle of 17th Century, which is well known in the history of Central Asia, as well as the Mongolian history. After the victory of the People’s Revolution, the name ‘Dorvod’was discarded and the Chandman Mountain Province was selected by the decision of the first conference of labors in the west. The Mongolian government changed the legislation on the structure of administrative divisions in February 1931 based on their economy. According to this legislation, Chandmani Mountain Province was divided into two Provinces: Khovd and Uvs. In 1940, Bayan Ulgii Province was established by taking Khazah and Urainhai soum from the province.
