The Genghis Khan Mausoleum is located in Erdos City of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. It was built by Chinese government from 1954 to 1956. Featuring the traditional Mongolian style, the mausoleum is not the real burial place of the Khan because his burial site remains a mystery. It is just a cenotaph, where the coffin contains no body, but there are only headdresses and accessories as decorations. [Sohu]
