There is a moving legend behind it. A long, long time ago there lived a couple of lovers on the grassland. The girl was Hu Lun. The boy was Bei Er. One day a demon chief called Mang Gusi abducted Hu Lun and dried up the grassland. The grass withered and yellowed and domestic animals died one after another. In order to save the grass- land and Hu Lun, Bei Er traveled a great distance on foot, chasing after Mang Gasi day and night. Finally, he fainted from exhaustion. In his weakened state, he dreamt that the demon chief had magically turned Hu Lun into a flower which was suffering from the windy and dusty weather. When Bei Er woke up, he saw the flower of his dream in front of him.
He immediately watered the flower and broke the spell. Hu Lun changed back into her former self. But the demon chief would not give up. He seized Hu Lun and took her away again. Hu Lun racked her brain for a way to escape. She succeeded in getting hold of the magic pearl on the demon chief's head. On swallowing the pearl Hu Lun turned into a lake. In the meantime Bei Er had killed all of the other demons, but failed to find Hu Lun. Heartbroken, Bei Er jumped into a lake to kill himself. All of a sudden the earth split open and formed two lakes, Hu Lun Lake and Be/ Er Lake, with the Wilson River closely connecting them . Later, people living on the grassland named the land Hulunbeier Grassland in memory of them.

Morin Khur 马头琴 Horse-headed violin is a typical Mongolian bowed instrument with two strings, however, very different from Er-Hu. The instrument was originally made from a horse head for the body, horse skin for the resonator, and horse hair for the strings and bow. The music played upon this instrument is of great variety and virtuosity. Much of the music typically sounds like human voice, and can imitate a horse to such an extent as real such as galloping horse, the whinnying, etc. The modern Morin Khur has a wooden body and soundboard, 2 horse hair strings, and has a rich warm tone and very beautiful sound. The peghead is decorated with a detailed carving of a horse's head.It issued a low, resonant sound.
