Searching for Chingis Khan's Tomb in Mongolia

Although Chingis Khan (aka Genghis Khan), the ‘world's most famous conqueror‘, didn't want anybody to know where he was buried, people have stubbornly searched for his burial place for centuries. As Don Croner explains:

[M]any assume that [Chingis Khan] must have been buried with a huge amount of treasure which would have an immense historical – to say nothing of monetary – value.

    Not there looking for – it is in other part of Eurasia. However, as his native people – the Tatars …

    Perhaps you know, that an outstanding Tatar historian-scientist D. Iskhakov wrote in 2000: “the real history of Tatars, of the people in every respect historical, is not written yet”.

    However, recently was published an above mentioned book by Galy Yenikeyev, about the unwritten (hidden) real history of Tatars.

    There are a lot of previously little-known historical facts, as well as 16 maps and illustrations in this book.

    This book presents a new, or rather “well-forgotten old” information about the true history of the Tatars and other Turkic peoples.

    It must be said, that there are many pro-Chinese and Persian falsifications of the “wild nomads” etc. in the official history.

    Therefore, primarily we should know the truth about the meaning of the names “Mongol” and “Tatar” (“Tartar”) in the medieval Eurasia: the name “Mongol” until the 17th-18th centuries meant belonging to a political community, and was not the ethnic name. While “the name “Tatar” was “the name of the native ethnos (nation) of Genghis Khan …” , “…Genghis Khan and his people did not speak the language, which we now call the “Mongolian”…” (Russian academic-orientalist V.P.Vasiliev, 19th century). This is also confirmed by many other little known facts.

    So in fact Genghis Khan was a great leader of the all Turkic peoples. But with time many of his descendants and tribesmen became spiritually disabled and forgot him and his invaluable doctrine and covenants… Tatars of Genghis Khan -medieval Tatars – were one of the Turkic nations, whose descendants now live in many of the fraternal Turkic peoples of Eurasia – among the Tatars, Kazakhs, Bashkirs, Uighurs, and many
    others.

    And few people know that the ethnos of medieval Tatars, which stopped the expansion of the Persians and the Chinese to the West of the World in Medieval centuries, is still alive. Despite the politicians of the tsars Romanovs and Bolsheviks dictators had divided and scattered this ethnos to different nations…

    About everything above mentioned and a lot of the true history of the Tatars and other fraternal Turkic peoples, which was hidden from us, had been written, in detail and proved, in the book “Forgotten Heritage of Tatars” (by Galy Yenikeyev).

    There are a lot of previously little-known historical facts, as well as 16 maps and illustrations in this book.
    On the cover of this book you can see the true appearance of Genghis Khan. It is his lifetime portrait. Notes to the portrait from the book says: “…In the ancient Tatar historical source «About the clan of Genghis-Khan» the author gives the words of the mother of Genghis-Khan: «My son Genghis looks like this: he has a golden bushy beard, he wears a white fur coat and goes on a white horse» [34, p. 14]. As we can see, the portrait of an unknown medieval artist in many ways corresponds to the words of the mother of the Hero, which have come down to us in this ancient Tatar story. Therefore, this portrait, which corresponds to the information of
    the Tatar source and to data from other sources, we believe, the most reliably transmits the appearance of Genghis-Khan…”.
