Mon­go­lia will mark the an­niver­sary of the birth of Ching­gis Khaan on Novem­ber 8 na­tion­wide.

On the oc­ca­sion of the cel­e­bra­tion, Cabi­net made a de­ci­sion to make Novem­ber 8 and 9 pub­lic hol­i­days. As Novem­ber 9 will be­come a pub­lic hol­i­day, Cabi­net min­is­ters agreed to des­ig­nate Satur­day, Novem­ber 17 as a work day for gov­ern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions.

In the morn­ing of Novem­ber 8, the pres­i­dent, speaker of Par­lia­ment, prime min­is­ter, and key rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the gov­ern­ment, the mil­i­tary, sports, arts, and herders will pay trib­ute to the statue of Ching­gis Khaan on the oc­ca­sion of the 856th an­niver­sary of his birth, or Na­tional Pride Day.

On the same day, the Or­der of Ching­gis Khaan will be awarded to a Mon­go­lian na­tional who has made great con­tri­bu­tions to Mon­go­lian de­vel­op­ment, pol­i­tics, arts, sports, or other sec­tors.

Ac­cord­ing to a state pro­to­col for cel­e­bra­tion of the khaan’s birth, the state heads will watch a wrestling com­pe­ti­tion for Na­tional Pride Day and grant awards to the win­ning wrestlers, as well as at­tend an arts and cul­ture event for the cel­e­bra­tion.
