Image of The Week: Mongolia – Colorful Religious Stone Ovoo

Whilst heading out on our four day adventure on the Mongolian Steppe, we passed this very colourful Ovoo on the side of the road. I had to stop and get a photo of it. Ovoo is Mongolian for a religious Cairn, and a Cairn is basically a pile of stones, usually in a conical shape that may represent a burial site, place of worship or even a landmark on a high point overlooking the surrounding landscape. It was one of the largest and most colourful we saw in Mongolia.
