Description
Hutukhtu, in Buddhism, was called the religious-spiritual and political leader and was the head of the Church and the State.
 
In the film we see footage of a palace and monastery of a Hutukhtu, located in the capital of Mongolia, Ulan Butor.
 
We look at the architectural details, doors with illustrations of honorable entities in Mongolia, and in one shot we see the filmmaker disguised as Hutukhtu.
We also watch gardens and corridors to the central pagoda, monks and visitors.

Creator's description


And now, the principal monument still left in Ulan Bator: the monastery and former palace of the Hutukhtu or religious leader of the Mongols before the Revolution. In the Buddhist hierarchy the Mongol Hutukhtu used to be No. 3 in order of importance after the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama in Tibet.

Good Lord! The Hutukhtu himself, resurrected. He’s quite a genial chap usually, but watch it! He can turn nasty.
Bonar, Andrew Graham
