Khalkh Gol River Monuments in eastern Mongolia

Located in the far eastern region of Mongolia, the Khalkhiin Gol monuments are situated 360 kilometers from Choibalsan town in Dornod province and 1040 kilometers from UB (Ulaanbaatar). These monuments and war memorials are dedicated to the Mongolian and Russian soldiers who lost their lives during the battle against Japan in 1939. The name “Khalkhiin Gol” is derived from the Khalkh River, which flows through the site.
