Good omen: twin camels born in Khovd

A traditional Mongolian sign of a good omen, twin baby camels, were born on March 24 in Myangad soum, Khovd province. Reports said the calves belong to herder J.Ganbat.

Besides being a sign of good luck, ancient traditions also call for informing the area’s highest authorities of such a birth. In keeping with the tradition, a photo of the camels was presented to Prime Minister S.Bayar by a head of the Citizens Representative Meeting of Khovd province and the Khovd Governor.

Khovd province has 17,000 camels, of them 5,025 camel cows are expected to give birth this year.
