Sagaalgan Holiday

The traditional holiday “Sagaalgan” was held at the Ethnographic Museum of Transbaikalia. Sagaalgan, White Crescent Holiday or Lunar Calendar New Year is one of the most important holidays of Buryats. It symbolizes the sacred meaning of white food and pure intentions, unity of nation and continuity of generations, respect for elders and adherence to ancient traditions.
