From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ejin Horo Banner, also known as Ejin Horo Qi (simplified Chinese: 伊金霍洛旗), is a part of Ordos City, in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, People's Republic of China. It covers an area of 5600 square kilometers, with a poulation of 140,000, the majority of whom are ethnically Han Chinese.

China's growing economy has led, in recent years, to increased development in the area of Ejin Horo, with the construction or improvement of roads, transportation centers, and accommodation for travellers and tourists.

Ejin Horo is also the location of the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan. Ethnic Mongolians in China have made pilgrimages to the mausoleum for decades, especially when the annual Naadam festival is held. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of tourists visiting the site. These tourists are often wealthy urban Chinese on domestic excursions. Local entrepreneurs are attempting to accommodate these visitors, and capitalize on the new situation. Whether or not the "Mausoleum" contains the actual remains of Genghis Khan is under heavy debate, as many scholars assume that Genghis was buried at his native place in northern Mongolia.
