Daa Khozhuun Celebrates its 240th Anniversary

Chadan hosts hundreds of visitors this week-end. 240th anniversary of the historical Daa kozhuun is being celebrated on a large scale with khuresh wrestling, concerts, horse-races. The date was discovered in the archive chronicles ten years by Kyrgys Arakchaa who knew the old Mongolian letter. Daa's 'birthday' happened 7 years after the Tsin dynasty occupation in 1758. The kozhuun at that time embraced the Northern parts of the Bai-Taiga, Dzun-Khemchik, Sut-Khol and Ulug-Khem districts. Fresh after this dicovery in 1995 the Dzun-Khemchik authorities decided to mark the occasion but confused the date and celebrated the 220th anniversary. Kyrgys Arakchaa present at the festivities as an honourable guest did not dare to correct the officials. Now the mistake is made up for. And for the last decade the kozhuun grew 20 years older. But the scientist did not live up to the new 'correct' jubileum.
