This stone monument is an important historical, cultural and astronomical sight in Mongolia. This stone deity was created in the years of 1859-1864 by the initiative of B.Togtokhtur, known as “To Van” throughout Mongolia.  In the mid of nineteenth century, drought and disaster occurred in the far east of Mongolia, this caused livestock to die off and people to suffer.  In order to stop the disaster, Togtokhtur Van had a meeting with the other monks to decide to erect the city of Janraisag. Experts believe that when To Van knew that the wealth of Mongolia was being sent abroad to worship Buddha so that he constructed this complex to keep the wealth that was generated by Mongolia’s ancestors in their motherland.

The role of 8 handed deity Janraisag is to protect the people from 8 kinds of suffering. This Janraisag deity located at the foot of the hill. In prospective hands of the deity, it holds items representing a lion, an elephant, a snake, fire, water, a chain, a cuff, and mind.  This statue is 30m long and 1-3 m deep in the rock. The stones used to build the monument were pulled to the construction site by 1000 ox drawn carts. The construction required 180 craftsmen to complete it.

Around the statue, there are 12 stupas and 20 smaller statues of beautiful works of art. It is one of the largest and tallest statues of the Janraisag deity in Mongolia. In fact, only 3 statues depicting this deity exist. The second one is located in the city of Ulaanbaatar. This statue is 26 meter high and it was made by copper and covered with gold. However, the stones of the monument looks like got melt it was carved on the stone and it is unknown until today how it was made.

Between 1930 and 1940, during Stalin's purge, most of the statues were destroyed, although, Japanese soldiers who attacked the river Khalkh in the east side of Mongolia did not dare to get close to the deity Janraisag. In the 1997, during the renaissance of Buddhism in Mongolia, deity Janraisag was consecrated again.
