The picture looks a bit surreal with the clouds, the sand dunes, the visitors, the Mongolian yurts and the color umbrellas.
Some readers requested to see the interior of the Mongolian yurt.
As indicated in my previous post, the inside is pretty basic.
It has a bed, a small table, an overhead lamp, no TV, a poorly furnished bathroom with cold water supply but didn’t seem to have facilities for shower, no windows but there was a ventilation opening protected from direct wind and sand – that’s about all.
The inside space was column free and I was wondering what holds up the roof.
The image shows many curved members meeting at a top carved timber ring – this is the meeting point or node where these members meet together. The walls and roof are supported off these curvilinear members.
Sorry that I do not have any more photos showing the interior, as I didn’t even consider it worthwhile taking any photos apart from the fantastic roof design!
