The Lost Tomb - Tomb of Genghis Khan - Netflix

The location of the tomb of Genghis Khan (died August 18th, 1227) has been the object of much speculation and research. The site remains undiscovered.

There were rumours concerning a standard containing clues to the site that had been removed by the Soviets from a Buddhist monastery in 1937, and rumours concerning a curse leading to the death of two French archaeologists (comparable to the curse of the tomb of Tamerlane, Gur-e Amir). On October 6, 2004, Genghis Khan's palace was discovered, which may make it possible to find his burial site. Amateur archaeologist Maury Kravitz dedicated 40 years to his search for the tomb. In a 15th-century account of a French Jesuit, he found a reference to an early battle where Genghis Khan, at the time still known as Temüjin, won a decisive victory. According to this source, he selected the confluence of the Kherlen and “Bruchi” rivers, with Burkhan Khaldun over his right shoulder, and after his victory, Temüjin said that this place would be forever his favourite. Kravitz, convinced that Temüjin's grave would be near that battlefield, attempted to find the “Bruchi” river, which turned out to be unknown to cartographers. He did, however, discover a toponym; “Baruun Bruch” (“West Bruch”) in the area in question and as of 2006 was conducting excavations there, roughly 100 km east of the Burkhan Khaldun (48°N 110°E, the wider area of Bayanbulag). Maury Kravitz died in 2012, without finding the tomb. Dr. Albert Yu-Min Lin leads an international crowdsourcing effort: The Valley of the Khan Project attempts to discover the tomb of Genghis Khan allegedly using non-invasive technology on this area. His team uses technology platforms for ground, aerial, and satellite-based remote sensing. Their protection of a region of Mongolia through investigation earned him the National Geographic Adventure magazine’s “2010 Readers Choice Adventurer of the Year.” In a January 2015 update on Dr. Albert Yu-Min Lin project, the University of California, San Diego set up a project asking anyone interested to tag potential sites of the burial through images taken from space. New searches are being conducted by using drones. In 2015 and 2016, two expeditions led by French archeologist Pierre-Henri Giscard, specialist of Mongolian archeology, around the Khentii mountains (North East of Mongolia) support the theory of a tumulus at the top of the Burkhan Khaldun mountain. Analysis shows that the 250m-long tumulus is artificial, a practice similar to ancient China and rather rare for Mongolia. The tumulus is also, still today, a sacred place for local people.
