Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. There are more than 10 tombs southwest of a high granite mountain in a place called Bukhiin Khoshuu in Delgerkhaan soum of Khentii aimag. While unearthing and researching the tomb discoveries in 2003, archaeologists of the Mongolian National Museum found three pieces of silk Deel garment and gold-covered buckle and other items. 

The artifacts are deemed to date back to the XIII-XIV centuries and embody important elements necessary to study the material culture of the Mongols. For the inimitable historical and cultural characteristics of the discovered garments and other pieces, the government of Mongolia registered them as ‘Valuable Heritage’ and issued a certificate in 2013. They are now preserved at the Mongolian National Museum.
