Its name is the interpretation of the Tibetan word "drepung" signifying "heap of rice".
The site has additionally a stylish esteem, since the religious community is encompassed by the beautiful, hallowed piles of the Khentii run : Munkh Ulziit, Arvan Gurvan Sansar, Bayan Baraat, and Bayan Khangai. Local people surmise that these four mountains have creature shapes : a lion at East, a winged serpent at South, a tiger at West, a garuda at North. The cloister is situated on the slope of a precarious precipice of Mount Munkh Ulziit, on which we can see a few stone figures speaking to Buddhist divine beings, mantras, and the image of soyombo.

As from 1921 and the beginnings of socialism in Mongolia, numerous lamas were pursued, especially in the mid thirties with the religious mistreatment approach. In the first place, the Government pursued the Buddhist church. A large portion of the lamas still alive were slaughtered and covered in mass graves or sent in labor camps. Just the most youthful ones could backpedal to their family. Numerous relics were refined and changed in projectiles that the Soviet Union Army utilized amid World War 2.
