17th - Early 20th Century

At the end of the 17th century, Mongolia was dominated by the Qing dynasty, but self-governed - a political contradiction. Despite living under the rule of the Manchu king, Mongolians retained their culture, history, language, traditions and recording Mongolian history. Explore many rare religious and political objects from this time, such as the thangka of Avtai Sain Khan (an influential religious and political figure) and Undur Gegeen anabazar's gilded anvil (Mongolia's first Bogd religious leader), and several history books. At the beginning of the 20th century, during the revolution of 1911, Mongolia declared independence from the Qing dynasty. This revolution was the first of three key revolutions during the 20th century, and led to the ascendance of the Khalkh religious leader (the 8th Bogd Jivzundamba) as the king of the Mongol state.
