Note: A large temple appears in the center of the map (F05-G05), corresponding to the Yeguzer Hutagt’s O’n o’glogt Su’m. The center of Erdenetsagaan Sum of Su’hbaatar Aimag is now located close to where this temple used to be. The Yeguzer Hutagt J. Galsandash (1870-1930) was one of the “Hutagts with Seal” (the great incarnations) of Setsen Han Aimag. His shavis belonged to this banner and had possessed their own territory in the eastern part of the banner since 1864. The Yeguzer Hutagt played an important political role in the 1910s and 1920s, particularly in Eastern Mongolia, just as the Jalhanz Hutagt did in Western Mongolia; his influence extended as far as neighboring banners in Inner Mongolia. At the time of his consecration as the seventh reincarnation of the Yeguzer Hutagt in 1874, a great festival was organized involving the participation of the 12 banners and Yalguulsan Hutagt’s Shavi of Setsen Han Aimag, Jevtsendamba Hutagt’s Shavi, and even the banners of Uzemchin, Huuchid and Barga in Inner Mongolia. In 1913, the Bogd Haan appointed him Minister for the Pacification of the South-Eastern Frontier. One of the tasks assigned to him by the Bogd Haan was to persuade the ruling princes of neighboring banners in Inner Mongolia to join his Mongolian state (Цогт-Очир 1992: 5-8).
